Yes. The easiest way to do this is to use the OhioLINK and SearchOhio services, which allow Kent State students, faculty, and staff to request books and other items free of charge from many colleges, universities, and public libraries throughout the state of Ohio. OhioLINK can be accessed via the "OhioLINK Central" buttons that are included on most pages within KentLINK (the library catalog). SearchOhio can be accessed via links found on search results pages and item description pages within OhioLINK. The two services can also be accessed directly using the links below. To request an item, click on the green "Request" button in OhioLINK or the "Request this title" link in SearchOhio.
If an item is not available through OhioLINK or SearchOhio, you can place a request with the library's Interlibrary Loan office, and the ILL staff will attempt to locate a copy of the item that can be borrowed.
