Searching for Material in WorldCat. WorldCat (OCLC FirstSearch) is a library catalog database containing over 49 million records for books, periodicals, scores, films, sound recordings, internet resources, manuscripts, and computer files. The records represent materials held by libraries in 45 countries including all ODIN libraries. This database can be accessed from the ODIN home page by choosing “All Databases” and clicking on the WorldCat link on the ODIN Licensed Resources page. Locate the material by using one of the search options. Choose the e-mail option near the top left of the screen. At the “to email address” type in: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . “Sender e-mail address” and “your full name” must be filled in. In the “notes” box, provide date material is needed and click “send”.

ILL Costs
Interlibrary loans are assessed a minimal fee to cover postage, plus any additional lending library charges. Patrons will always be consulted before accepting additional charges required by a lending library. Charges must be paid at the time material is picked up.

ILL Delivery Time
For requests made through ODIN, allow at least one week for material to arrive. Material found in WorldCat or requested from out-of-state may require a longer delivery time.

ILL Renewals
As a courtesy to the lending library, requests for renewal should be made before the material's due date. Requests after the due date may be denied. Contact the library administrative assistant to request an ILL renewal.

ILL Refusals
A non-refundable $5.00 per item penalty plus the cost of the ILL is charged to the student’s account for material not picked up before it must be returned to the lending library.

Renew Materials

Patrons are encouraged to renew their material online before the due date. A 24-hour waiting period is required before returned overdue material can be checked out by the same patron. The material must be returned to the library and will be re-shelved.
