Information for Users
WHO MAY USE INTERLIBRARY LOAN?
Any current student, faculty, emeritus faculty or staff member of Walsh University may use this service. Others may use the services of the Stark County District Library or North Canton Public Library.
There is no charge to borrow books or videos. There is no charge for articles, which are yours to keep.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You let us know the book, article or video you need. We check a database of over 40,000 libraries throughout the country to see who owns it, then send an electronic request to them. If they are unable to send it, the request is passed on to another library that owns the item. More than 95% of requests are filled with this system, which goes beyond the scope of OPAL and OhioLINK.
Most items arrive within 8 days, though longer waits can be expected from libraries far away.
Copies of articles are yours to keep. For other resources, the lending library decides if it will permit a renewal, and we have to request it BEFORE THE ITEM IS DUE. If you need a book beyond its due date, please contact the library. Unlike OPAL and OhioLINK materials, you can not self-renew these items online.
The Brother Edmond Drouin Library strives to maintain a good reputation among lending libraries and strictly enforces fines for overdue interlibrary loan materials. Overdue fines on interlibrary loan materials are $0.50 per day. In the case of lost or presumed lost materials, the patron will pay the replacement charge imposed by lending library.
