If you need a physical book from the McGraw-Page Library, you can search for it in the Library Catalog and place a hold for the title (learn how). If you live on-campus or locally, you can pick the book up at the Library (follow the directions in the email you receive when your hold is ready).
If the campus is operating normally (and you are not quarantined or under a shelter-in-place order), you can come to the McGraw-Page Library during regular open hours to browse our materials and find and check out materials yourself.
If you do not live close to Ashland, our document delivery service can provide digital copies of chapters for print books owned by the library, or we may be able to locate an electronic copy of the book. To locate books, search the Library Catalog and place an interlibrary loan request (learn how). If you have questions about this process, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
