End of semester library reminders

Library materials that students have been using for the semester are officially due today -- December 15, 2008. These do not include shorter-term loan materials such as OhioLINK, ILL, reserve, periodicals, and recordings which have their own specific due dates. You can see everything you have checked out to you, and when it is due, by viewing your library record.

We recognize that some of you need to keep using your material through exams -- if this is the case, you may keep your semester-loan materials (books and scores due on December 15) until you have finished with them.

Many materials are renewable; please read our advice about renewing materials.

Do you have other questions about end-of-semester policies and procedures? Check out our FAQ, or contact any circulation supervisor for advice.

All the best at this busy time!

Allison Gallaher
Head of Circulation
