Loans and Circulation

With an active library account, you may access online resources and (if in the state of Ohio) you may borrow items not only from the Clara Fritzsche Library, but also from other OhioLINK member libraries. Get more information about Your Library Account here.

The Notre Dame College ID card issued to on-campus students, faculty and staff is also your Library card. It may be used to borrow from any OhioLINK Member Library
(See the OhioLINK Members List)
. Online students and faculty will receive other credentials to access library resources after submitting a circulation agreement.
