  • Pick up materials at any OhioLINK or SearchOhio Library using the "Pick Up Anywhere" method
  • Free home delivery of print materials is available to faculty or students who live more than 20 miles from any of these other options and the requested material is not available as an e-book or streamed movie in The University of Akron catalog.
  • Consult with the library staff to assess your situation and determine the most efficient method for your location

What You Will Need

You will need the following to access library services:

  • Your ZipCard: This is your library card.  It has essential information that you will need to access and request library materials.
  • Your UAnet ID and password: You will not be able to access the Library's Springboard classroom or any subscription resources without it.  Maintain your password and do not let it expire.
  • Your UAnet email: This is how we will communicate with you.  We cannot send any library resources to you via any non-UA email address.  Check your email at least once daily, more often if we are actively assisting you.
  • Access to WebEx: This is how we will hold virtual office hours, online demonstrations, and in-depth reference assistance.  For best results, a webcam and sound are essential.  Many tablets and smartphones allow you to use the camera and microphone to communicate via WebEx.  You may want to download the app in advance of needing it.
