Books for faculty/staff are checked out for the balance of the academic year. At the end of the academic year, all materials checked out can be renewed.
The library includes more than 30,000 volumes, print periodicals and audiovisual materials. It is backed by the extensive resources of BGSU's Jerome Library and the statewide catalog, OhioLINK.
Important: Please be aware that books and audiovisiual materials are loaned out to patrons through OhioLINK. If you are going to need any of these materials during the semester for your classes, you may want to check them out or put them on reserve in the library so they don't leave the library and you have them when you need them. Also, if you should have an extra text book or another book you are using for your class, we can put that on reserve (to be used in the library only) as well.
If students encounter a problem purchasing textbooks in the beginning of the semester, please let us know and we might have a copy available for them. Also, if you can make your copy available, that would be helpful. We can't purchase all of the textbooks, but we can try to accomadate the students as much as possible.
