What does “non-circ” mean? “OhioU use only”?

When an item has a status of “non-circ,” it means that the item cannot be checked out and does not leave the library building. ¬†Such items are generally key reference books like dictionaries and encyclopedias. ¬†Items in Archives and Special Collections are often marked “non-circ” and must be used in the Mahn Center.

When the status is “OhioU use only,” it means that we will not loan the item via OhioLINK but Ohio University faculty, staff, students, and emeriti and Friends of the Libraries are welcome to check out the item.
