Through OhioLINK, a statewide consortium of college and university libraries, students, faculty and staff can access approximately 46 million additional items at member institutions, delivered on demand within a few days. A Federal Depository Library since 1969, Roesch Library also provides access to government records in physical and electronic forms.
With limited exception, Roesch Library is open every day, normally until 5 a.m. during regular weeks of the term and 24 hours during exam weeks.

These services will be maintained during renovations underway in the 2018-19 academic year; temporary relocations will be communicated through signage and various campus media.
Computers, printers, copiers, and scanners are available, as well as cameras, phone chargers, e-readers, tech-enabled team tables, and study rooms for individuals and groups. Wi-Fi is available throughout the building.
The Libraries also provide all University of Dayton students, faculty, and staff with an online subscription to The New York Times free of charge. Community programs address a variety of curricular topics and current issues. An open-access institutional repository, eCommons, provides a permanent and discoverable electronic archive of University scholarship, culture, and documents.
