RECALLS

  • If another patron wants the material you have checked out, they can place a recall to request the material be brought back.
  • Recalls are usually only made if there are no other copies of the material available anywhere else in Ohio, or the item is needed to be placed on Reserve for a class.
  • Non-media materials (most books, etc.) are subject to recall after 21 days.
  • Audiovisual materials are subject to recall after 7 days.
  • Recalled materials will be assigned a revised due date.
  • Fines of $5 per day will be assessed for recalled items returned after the due date.

PAYMENT OF FINES AND FEES

GRACE PERIODS

  • Where grace periods are applicable, fines will not be assessed for items returned or renewed within their grace period. If an item is returned after the grace period, the fine will accrue from the most recent due date (not the end of the grace period), for the entire period the item is overdue.
  • Two-hour Reserve and Periodicals have a ten (10) minute grace period. If the item is returned after the grace period, the fine will accrue from the most recent time due (not the end of the grace period) for the entire period the item is overdue.
