Doing research from off-campus
News from the Oberlin College Library
We know that many of you are still using these materials, and you should feel free to keep using your material through reading period and exams. Remember that special due dates still apply to reserve materials, periodicals, recalled items, interlibrary loans, OhioLINK materials, and other short-term loan items, and you will be responsible for fines if the items are returned overdue.
If you wish to keep library materials during the holiday shutdown or beyond, please renew them. If you are leaving library materials in a Main Library scholar study or carrel for shutdown and/or Winter Term, please be aware that the green, in-house use streamers must be date stamped so that we know that your books are not overdue. Be sure to ask the circulation desk staff to date stamp your renewals and new check-outs if you are not offered that service.
Do you want to check on what you currently have checked out and when it's due? Just access your account at http://obis.oberlin.edu/patroninfo/
Please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions about your library account or our policies! Best of luck in the final days of the semester!
Do you have other questions about end-of-semester policies and procedures? Check out our FAQ, or contact any circulation supervisor for advice.

All lab Macintoshes (this includes all of the Macs in Academic Commons and library spaces) as well as the loaner laptops from all four libraries have DeepFreeze software installed on them. Once the computers are shutdown or restarted, all user data is removed. We cannot recover any documents after restart. Please save and email yourselves a copy of any document that you are working on at least once and when using a laptop, plug the power cable in.
