First, check to be sure you're using the right number. Your barcode number is 14 digits long and will start with '28153'.
If you are using the correct number and it still isn't working, you'll need to contact a librarian to have your account re-activated. Accounts are reset every semester, and a number of things, including transferring and late registration, can cause your account to be missed.
Just give us an email atlibrary@ muskingum.edu, call us at x8152, or talk with us via chat and we'll get your account fixed ASAP.
Vist ourarticle request formto request an article the Muskingum University Library does not own. We'll see if we can find it for you at another library.
You'll need to know all the basic information for your article (title, journal, date, author), but you do not need your student ID.
Usually, articles are free and fast, but occasionally they can take awhile. Be aware that an article you request could take as long as two weeks. There may be a charge for an article, but we will never order an article that will cost you money without asking you first.
On the third Thursday of each month during the semester, the library brings in a Muskingum University professor or local author to discuss a paper, research project, or book. The event is held in Cambridge Hall from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. A question and answer session follows each talk. Typically, there are three Author Talks in the Fall and four in the Spring. We are able to take attendance at Author Talks. Just let us know in advance.
For more information on Author Talks, visit the library's Events page or contact Linda Hatfield at (740) 826-8017 or email@example.com.
