OhioLINK has resumed print lending. You may request items through the OhioLINK Library Catalog. To protect users, they have changed some delivery and processing procedures, so items may take longer to arrive.

Check out materials using your new Y Card in the YSU App (student life section), the YSU Portal (under e-Services), or directly at View the Video: How to Use Your Virtual Y Card at Maag.

For Maag Library and CRC book returns, use the outside book drop located on the west side of Maag Library anytime. You may also drop off returns at the Maag Circulation Desk during library hours.

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.

Request Forms


Some materials from Maag's locally-held collections, including chapters from Textbooks that Maag owns, can be delivered to you electronically. Items such as articles and book chapters, in compliance with copyright guidelines, can be digitized and sent to your YSU email.

You may request electronic copies of  locally-held materials using the Request Forms. Materials requested from Maag’s collection will usually be sent to your YSU email within 24 business hours.
