Using OhioLINK resources over the summer

All Oberlin staff and registered students have access to OhioLINK electronic resources over the summer using these remote authentication protocols.

In addition, did you know that you may continue to request OhioLINK materials and pick them up at any OhioLINK library? Using what we call the Pick-up Anywhere option, you may select a library near you to receive your requested materials. See more details in the OhioLINK What's New entry Heading Home for the Summer? OhioLINK delivers.

We regret that this is only useful for those of you living near an OhioLINK member institution. Maybe it's time to move?

The New Mellon Fellow has a Familiar Face!

David Matchim is from from Rocklin, CA and graduated from Oberlin College Conservatory of Music with a Bachelor of Music in Trumpet Performance this spring. An active performer, David was a member and manager of the Tappan Brass Quintet.

David has worked at the Conservatory Library as a student circulation attendant and the Conservatory Ensemble Library as student manager of the Oberlin Chamber Orchestra and College-Community Winds. David also teaches nearly a dozen young trumpet players in the Oberlin area.

He is interested in pursuing a career in Orchestral or Music librarianship and plans to earn a double graduate degree in Trumpet Performance and Library Science at University of Southern California, Los Angeles (UCLA) or Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. David is honored to be the Mellon Fellow and excited to spend another year at Oberlin College!

Where’s Reference?

This summer the Main Library reference collection is temporarily housed on the 2nd Level, north side. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, please contact us.
