  • Visiting OhioLINK and SearchOhio patrons will need a current valid ID from their home institution.


Archer Library • Check Out Guidelines


  • The total number of items a student may borrow at any given time is twenty-five (25). This may be a combination of different material types. Item limits are set for material type:

    books = 25,
    music CDs = 5,
    DVDs = 3
    IRC collection = 10
  • Materials should be returned to the location at which they were checked out. However, they may be returned to any OhioLINK member library. Keep in mind, they cannot be checked in until they reach Archer Library. This may result in late fees.
  • Practicum and dissertations may circulate to Ashland University graduate students for a period of three months.
  • A one-day grace period for lateness may be applied.
  • Circulation privileges for students cease once fines equal or exceed $10.
  • Replacement fees for lost and/or damaged items is the cost of the item plus processing fees.
  • Ashland University faculty may arrange for an extended circulation period for Archer Library owned materials; IRC materials are not extended beyond a period of one month. Please note that extended faculty loans are subject to recall.
