This page will show you how to find which books, journals, and articles the UC libraries have and the ebooksdigital articles to which the UC Libraries subscribe.
The first box shows you Summon which searches our full-text digital journal articles, ebooks, and UC libraries' online catalog, UCLID. The next box includes subject headings that are used in UCLID on international environmental law. The third one describes UCLID and provides a search box for it. The fourth box shows OhioLink, which has records for all the paper books and journals in 82 libraries in Ohio. The fifth box is for searching WorldCat. If you cannot find what you want in UCLID or OhioLink, copy the accession number from the WorldCat record and submit an interlibrary loan request.

Always check UCLID first to see if a book is available in our library or another UC library.
When you find a title through UCLID, the online catalog, that is owned by another library:
The book will be delivered to the Law Library and you will receive an email in your UC email account when it comes. Be aware that it may take 3 or more days to arrive. Note that if your pick-up location and request location are the same, the request is not processed. In other words, if a book is available in the law library, do not request it. Instead retrieve the book yourself and check it out.
If a book you want is not available at UC, you may be able to find and borrow it through the OhioLINK. Be sure and check UCLID first. OhioLINK is also accessible through UCLID (click the search OhioLINK button)
When you find a title that is owned by another library:
If a book you want is not available in UCLID or OhioLINK, you will need to submit an Interlibrary Loan Request.
The book will be delivered to the Law Library and you will receive an email in your UC email account when it comes. Be aware that it may take 10 or more days to arrive. Circulation loan periods will vary. Renewal options will also vary.
