OSU-Libraries' Items


Requests may be placed on any general OSU items available through 1Search, the library's catalog. For OSU-Cascades items staff will retrieve the item and place it on the hold shelf, which you can retrieve at the desk in the Library & Learning Commons (Tykeson 202). You will receive an email when the item is ready for pick up.

If you can't find an item on the shelf, ask Library staff for assistance with finding the item. If it still can't be found, place a request through 1Search, which will trigger additional staff to search for the item. If it's not found, staff will place a Summit request or will direct you to place an interlibrary loan request.


Requests may be placed on general collection OSU Library items that are currently checked out through the library catalog and the book becomes recalled. The recalled status blocks the patron who has it checked out from renewing and will change the due date to one week from when requested. You will receive an email when the item is ready for pick up at Circulation.

If you have an item checked out that has been requested, you receive an email of what your new due date is. You will have one week to return the item from when it was requested. Overdue fines are $2 a day.
