Billing

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. 

Lost or Damaged Materials

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. Lost Valley Library items will not affect your borrowing privileges. Refunds for Summit and ILL are determined by the lending library. 

Non-OSU patrons' borrowing privileges will be temporarily suspended if library charges exceed $100 and they will be reinstated when 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.

Appealing Library Charges

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.
