    Getting Started at the University Libraries

    1. To borrow items from the libraries you need your BGSU photo ID and a current record in the library database. For more detailed information, see Borrowing, Renewing, and Requesting.

    2. Library Login: BGSU Students, Faculty, and Staff need only their BGSU username and password to log in for remote access to the research databases, OhioLINK and local requesting, and My Library Account. The BGSU username and password is the same one used for logging in to MyBGSU, campus email, and BGSU lab and library computers. Look for more information on the relevant log-in screens.

    3. If the University Libraries doesn't have what you need, chances are that OhioLINK does. OhioLINK is the 80+ academic (and some public) libraries that lend their resources to one another through an online requesting system. Look for the "Request this item" button in the OhioLINK catalog. For more detailed information, see OhioLINK requesting.

    4. We're here to assist you! If you need help using the library, can't find what you want, have an assignment and need help getting started, Ask Us for immediate help. Besides drop-in help, the University Libraries offer Individual Research Appointments for undergraduates & graduate students.
