Library Support

Musselman Library supports all kinds of research.  When these guides aren't enough, or you need extra help finding or working with information, use the Ask A Librarian button to see all the ways we can help you. 

Interlibrary Loan

Our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service is used whenever books, articles, media, and other research resources you need are not available here at Bluffton, through the OhioLINK catalog, or through our electronic collections.  ILL staff find a library that owns what you need and that will lend it (or send a copy of it) to us.

Request an article from a journal, magazine, newspaper, or other source

Request a book, DVD, video, or other media
