The Hallie Q. Brown Memorial Library is committed to the academic success of our students and faculty, and will do everything to support your research needs remotely. Librarians are available to assist by email (Reference Desk) or by phone (937) 376-6106.

Accessing Electronic Resources from Off-Campus

Most electronic resources, especially the research databases, eBooks, and streaming video content to which the library subscribes are governed by license agreements that restricts access to current Central State University students, faculty and staff when accessed from off-campus. Remote access to these resources requires authentication using your name and CSU 14 digit barcode number located on the front of your ID. If you do not have a university ID, please contact the library for assistance.

Note: Career+ (formerly Union+) students will not be able to request books through OhioLINK.

Requirements for Access

  1. Registered for classes for the current semester
  2. Patron (faculty, staff, and student) record created in the library system
