Borrowing Services are available for materials in the XPLORE and OhioLINK library catalogs.

XPLORE is Xavier's library catalog and OhioLINK is the combined library catalog for about 85 academic and public libraries in the State of Ohio.

These materials may be requested online (help requesting).

Xavier owned materials are picked up at the Connection Center in the Conaton Learning Commons. 

Items may be returned at the Connection Center in the Conaton Learning Commons or in the outside bookdrop located near the exit doors to the McDonald Libary.OhioLINK materials may be picked up and returned to Xavier or to another OhioLINK library more convenient for you.

If materials are overdue, it is more cost efficient to return them to Xavier's library.
