OhioLINK

The Cleveland Institute of Art Library is a member of OhioLINK, a consortium of 88 Ohio colleges and universities, and the State Library of Ohio. OhioLINK provides access to nearly 50 million items statewide. Click here for OhioLINK's main page.

Who May Borrow OhioLINK Items?

Cleveland Institute of Art degree-program students and faculty, emeritus faculty, and most staff may borrow items from OhioLINK.

Requesting OhioLINK items

If an item is unavailable through our catalog, then it’s possible to borrow it through OhioLINK. Materials may be requested from other OhioLINK libraries for delivery to the CIA Library in approximately 3-5 business days. There is no fee for borrowing OhioLINK materials.

Once you have located the item you want in the OhioLINK central catalog:

  • Click on “request this item” link
  • Select “CWRU” as your institution and “Cleveland Institute of Art Lib” as your pick-up location
  • Type in your name and your library account number, and click “submit”
  • You will receive an email at your CIA email address when your requested item is available for pick up

OhioLINK Loan Periods & Fines

General loan periods

  • Faculty: loan period is 42 days with 6 renewals
  • Students and staff: loan period is 21 days with 6 renewals.
  • DVDs and CDs: loan period is 7 days and these items are usually not renewable

OhioLINK fines

  • Overdue fine:  50¢ per item per day
  • Replacement fee for lost or damaged items: $125. If item is returned after billing, the fine will be reduced to $50.

OhioLINK fines and fees are firm, and the CIA Library staff is not able to negotiate these.

Courtesy notices, overdue notices, and bills for OhioLINK items are sent to your CIA email address.

Borrowing privileges are suspended if the amount owed on your library account exceeds $15.00.

Using OhioLINK Databases

Access to the OhioLINK databases is limited to the CIA network.

Visiting Other OhioLINK Libraries

As a current student, faculty or staff with a clear library record, you have borrowing privileges at any OhioLINK library. Present a valid CIA ID to that library’s circulation staff, and tell them you are an OhioLINK visiting patron.

OhioLINK Finding Aid Repository

The OhioLINK Finding Aid Repository is designed to showcase the rich collections housed in archives, libraries, and other institutions throughout the state of Ohio. The Repository provides access to collections on a broad scale, increasing the visibility of these unique and valuable resources for research.

If an item is not available through our local consortium catalog, please check the OhioLINK catalog and the Cleveland Public Library catalog. If you still can't find what you're looking for, ask the staff about interlibrary loan.
