Once a month, library charges are submitted to Business Affairs and posted directly to your OSU account. An invoice is sent to you at the beginning of each month if you have any charges.
Items considered lost will be billed to your OSU account. The lost item charge for OSU items returned within 1 year of the billing date are automatically credited. Overdue fines and processing fees may still apply. Refunds for Summit and ILL are determined by the lending library.
Lost items remain on your library record for 1 year which allows an automatic credit if items are returned and usually will not affect your borrowing privileges.
Borrowing privileges will be temporarily suspended if library charges exceed $100 for non-OSU patrons until those charges have been resolved.
The borrower is financially responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged library materials and/or equipment. Regardless of whether payment has been made for an item, library items remain the property of the university. Materials cannot be purchased from the library. Any person who has falsely claimed to have lost materials simply to retain possession can be charged for illegally possessing state property. If library items are damaged, especially by water, please return them immediately to Circulation so appropriate measures can be taken.
You may appeal library charges if you believe they have been mistakenly assessed or that extenuating circumstances warrant reduction or cancellation. Appeals should be made within 30 days of the original billing. You will receive a response by email within one week.
