MAAG LIBRARY ACCESS

In line with ongoing efforts by state and university officials to slow the spread of COVID-19, YSU's Maag Library & Curriculum Resource Center (CRC) are closed.
Library staff are available virtually to support online research, teaching, and learning for faculty and students.

PRINT LENDING

All borrowing of physical items is suspended until further notice. This includes local materials, OhioLINK, SearchOhio, and Interlibrary Loan. This measure is necessary to prevent possible exposure to contaminated materials that can circulate locally, statewide, nationwide, and globally. 

  • Until the library reopens, please keep books and other materials previously checked-out.
  • Rest assured that all fines and late fees accrued during this time will be waived.
  • Local holds have been disabled.

Copyright & Fair Use

Public Statement of Library Copyright Specialists: Fair Use & Emergency Remote Teaching & Research: This Statement is meant to provide clarity for U.S. colleges and universities about how copyright law applies to the many facets of remote teaching and research in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak.

INTERLIBRARY LOAN: ONLINE MATERIALS

The library will attempt to obtain interlibrary loan requests for electronic materials, including journal articles. Since this service is dependent upon other institutions being open and able to share materials, we cannot guarantee that we can fill your request, but we will do our best to find it for you.
