Library Service Updates: Home

Important news


Off campus access to Kanopy is currently not working. We have a ticket in with the vendor and they will restore access as soon as possible. Kanopy films are working fine on campus. If you've set up your own account on Kanopy, you should also have access to our films from off campus.


State-wide OhioLINK and SearchOhio delivery delays

The State Library of Ohio and OhioLINK, who manage and coordinate the delivery of materials between libraries, recently switched delivery vendors. The new courier, STAT Courier Service, Inc., is facing a severe backlog of delivery items to libraries across the entire state due to driver and supply shortages. These delays are impacting all libraries, including the Jessica R. Gund Memorial Library at Cleveland Institute of Art. We have been in regular communication with OhioLINK about our concerns with delays. The State Library of Ohio, OhioLINK, and STAT Courier Service, Inc. are working very hard to resolve this issue as fast as possible.
