End of the Semester Renewals and Summer Privileges

Font size: AAA

Due dates

All semester-loan library material (primarily non-reserve books and government documents) is due on Thursday, May 16, 2019. Please remember that other library materials, such as reserve, periodicals, video materials, interlibrary loans, OhioLINK items, and recalled materials may have different due dates.

Extensions until the end of the semester

If you are completing work due during the exam period, you may keep semester loan items for a few extra days.

Beginning on Friday, May 11, borrowers may check out and renew library materials to use until their privileges expire.  Keeping any library materials overdue will result in our holding your enrollment next semester.

Extensions for the summer

All Oberlin College Libraries materials must be returned by the end of the exam period, unless you have made other arrangements at the lending library.

If you are a student returning to Oberlin in the fall, you may register for summer privileges at the Terrell Main Library Circulation Desk. Please note that you are still responsible for renewing your materials after you've set-up your summer privileges and that you must guarantee the safe and prompt return of the materials at the end of the smmer or when recalled. Please take good care of the material and monitor your Oberlin College email account regularly. The Libraries may restrict what types of materials may be taken off-campus. For example, video and sound recordings and interlibrary loan materials are not approved for off-campus borrowing.

The cost of replacing materials lost or damaged while in your care will be billed to you at the replacement cost plus a $25 processing fee per item.  Recall fines will be enforced without regard to the distance you are from Oberlin. If you choose to take materials off campus, you do so accepting these responsibilities. Please contact a circulation supervisor if you have any questions about this policy.

Privileges for Graduates

Graduating students will be billed for the replacement and processing costs of unreturned materials.  

Graduating students who remain in the area may become alumni borrowers. Ask for a copy of the courtesy borrowing privileges at the circulation desk for more information.


Please contact Allison Gallaher, Head of Public Services, or another circulation supervisor if you have any questions about our policies.

Thank you for your cooperation!
