Is it possible to access the stacks, study spaces on closed floors, or the Faculty Commons when only the 2nd or 4th floor is open? – OHIO University Libraries

Is it possible to access the stacks, study spaces on closed floors, or the Faculty Commons when only the 2nd or 4th floor is open?

When the 2nd and/or 4th floors are open and the other floors of Alden are closed, service desk staff will retrieve known items from other floors for you to check out. Take the title and call number for an available item to either the 2nd or 4th floor service desks.

Also, Ohio University graduate students, HTC students, Cutler Scholars, or faculty may present their Ohio ID to the service desk staff for a stacks pass in order to access other floors of Alden Library when only the 2nd and/or 4th floors are open. Other students with special projects or needs can request limited access by contacting Kelly Broughton, Assistant Dean for Research and Education Services.

Note that during breaks or holidays, when staffing is limited, there may be times when paging materials or stacks passes are unavailable.
