OhioLINK is the catalog in which we search statewide for books and other materials. You can order the book you want by clicking on request and entering your home institution which is Bowling Green, submit, and then enter your username/password (same as you use for my. BGSU) and be sure to click on Firelands as your location – otherwise your book will automatically go to main campus. 

You will receive an email when the book arrives here at Firelands library (usually within three days or so) and you have ten days to come and pick it up.  Bring your BG One card.
