Collections requiring controlled storage conditions are safely housed at Iron Mountain National Underground Storage, north of Pittsburgh. Case faculty, students & staff may request retrieval to KSL.
Iron Mountain items are retrieved Mon.-Fri. (university holidays excepted).for current Case faculty, staff, & students only. Others, including guests & OhioLINK individuals may request through Interlibrary Loan via their public or other libraries.
Some duplicate titles also may be found in the OhioLINK Central Catalog and may be available for longer borrowing or use ( up to 4 renewals), and may be in more stable condition. Reference staff at KSL (368-6596) will be happy to help with your citation and information about Iron Mountain materials.
KSL reserves the right to limit the number of items retrieved per day for a requestor. In the case of numerous multiple requests on a given day, library staff will assist you in prioritizing multiple requests for efficient retrieval, receipt, storage, and use at Kelvin Smith Library.
Return Case or OhioLINK items to any Case library, yes. Case libraries have different hours, so your book might not get checked in on the day you return it if you use a bookdrop.
Return the CPL@Case-KSL books only to KSL, so the collection is here for you & others. Case libraries are not responsible for returning other local libraries’ books. Returning public library books here will not check them off of your account at those libraries.
