Academic Libraries

Lakeland students and faculty may use their Lakeland Library accounts to borrow from other nearby OhioLINK libraries. Academic institutions may have separate policies for community borrowers, so attention to the lending institution's borrowing policies is a must!

Public Libraries

Many public library collections contain materials appropriate for college level research. Public libraries will give cards to patrons with proof of Ohio residency. Again, borrowers must follow the policies and procedures of the lending library.


Lakeland students and Ohio residents may borrow interlibrary loan items through OhioLINK and SearchOhio. Patrons must have an account in good standing with a consortium member library.

To access WorldCat from off-campus, you must be a student or faculty member of an OhioLINK library.
