See your message in 'lites'

Do you have an event you want to advertise or a message you wish to share with others? Why not share your message on a giant Lite Brite? Over the summer term the library built the large 3 ft by 4 ft Lite Brite that now sits in front of the Info Desk. Since its placement there we have shared a variety of different messages including information about our textbooks on reserve, joining a reading group and a pirate message on Talk like a Pirate Day. We now invite you to create your own Lite Brite message design.

Please email your design to Jessie Long, For best results aim for a message of five words or less.

SearchOhio: Even more books and DVDs!

You may have noticed the icon above in the OhioLINK Central Catalog when your searches carry you there.  SearchOhio is a group of 19 Ohio public libraries that have added the ability to borrow their collections to OhioLINK members (2 of those libraries are already part of OhioLINK).  That means that Miami library patrons can search these libraries collections and order materials from them just as you do with other OhioLINK libraries.

When you run a search in OhioLINK's catalog (or pass into the OhioLINK catalog by clicking on OhioLINK from a search in the MU catalog), you'll see the SearchOhio logo.  Click on that logo to run your search or look for the specific item you are viewing in SearchOhio.  Then request it.  We hope you will find this a useful addition of materials.
