The library accepts items which add to the uniqueness of our collection and that not are owned by a significant number of other OhioLINK libraries. To sum up: if Ohio University Library does not own the item, we would be interested in receiving it. We may decide not to add it to the collection if other libraries in Ohio own it.
Periodicals fall into a different category. They are generally not accepted because our runs are usually complete and because of the availability of electronic back issues.
To save time you may check our ALICE Catalog to see if we own an item, or OhioLINK Catalog to see if other Ohio libraries own it, before you go to the trouble of making a list or attempting to deliver to us.
