End of Spring Semester FAQ

Font size: AAA

Due Dates

Most books, scores, and government documents are due on May 16. If you are completing work due during the exam period, you may keep semester loan items for a few extra days and you will not be charged fines. If you wish to keep library materials beyond that, please renew them. Remember that special due dates still apply to reserve materials, recalled items, video materials, interlibrary loans, OhioLINK materials and other short-term loan items, and you will be responsible for fines if the items are returned overdue.

Checking your Library Record


You may produce a list of items currently checked out to you by using "View your library record" in OBIS; you can also display and print unpaid fines.  This does not include items checked out via our traditional ILL system. Log in to your interlibrary loan account for a list of ILL items you have.  Please contact a circulation supervisor at your earliest convenience if you believe our records to be in error.


Fines for Overdue Materials


  • Recalled items are fined at a rate of $10/day. Recalled items are due at the time indicated on your notice.
  • Periodicals from the Conservatory Libraries are fined at a rate of $1/day.  Periodicals from the Science Library are fined at a rate of $0.50/hour. Be sure to return or renew them by their due dates.
  • Interlibrary loan materials are fined at a rate of $1/day.
  • OhioLINK and SearchOhio materials are fined at a rate of $0.50/day.


Scholar studies and carrels must be cleared by 5:30 p.m., Sunday, May 26. Locker keys must be turned in to the library office by 4:30 pm on Friday, May 24.  You are responsible for the safe return, in good condition, of all materials checked out to you according to our records. This includes items that you have been using in-house, in carrels, lockers, or scholar studies.

Please contact a circulation supervisor if you have any questions about our policies.

Thank you for your cooperation!
