Return items by December 7 to avoid paying big $$$ later

A friendly reminder to Undergraduate students...ALL items borrowed from the Library must by returned by 8 p.m on Friday, December 7. Items not returned will be treated as lost and billed for replacement.

Lost library items owned by Muskingum are $100.00 each.
Items returned within three months of being billed will be credited an $85.00 refund. However, the $15.00 billing fee cannot be refunded. No refunds will be made after three months.

Researching Now = Less Stress Later

Photo by Kaleb Fulgham

We're only four weeks away from the last day of classes. How is your research coming along on that paper? Sorry to bring it up, but I thought I should ask. Don't worry, you still have time to find the information you need.

It's a good idea to request any OhioLINK books you may need now. It will take 2-3 days for the books to arrive on campus. You can always use QuickSearch to find articles, but sometimes you are better off using specific subject resources.

Do you normally wait until the last minute? Don't stress can probably find relevant information on your topic in the Electronic Book Center, Electronic Journal Center, or Academic Search Complete.

Oh yeah, I forgot to say...remember that you have a friend in the library! We're here to help you. All you have to do is ask and if we not online just send us an email at
