If there is a video in our catalog that Osher you would like to use in the classroom they can be place on Reserve. Contact ereswml@rit.edu. You must be an Osher instructor to borrow reserve DVDs. You will need to come to the library to borrow and return any videos you wish to use in class.

Interlibrary Loan

Osher students are not eligible to use Interlibrary Loan or Connect NY to request books the library does not own. Please contact your local public library for additional resources. You may also apply for an RRLC Access Card through your public library that would allow you to borrow books directly from other local area colleges. For more information: https://rrlc.org/resource-sharing/access-cards/.

Get help!

Osher students have their very own librarian! If you have any library-related questions or need help researching material for a class, contact Wendy Way for assistance. Her contact information can be found using the Chat Now / Get Help button at the top-right of the page.
