Circulation FAQ

The Ohio State  University Libraries Circulation Services are committed to meeting the diverse and changing needs of the University's faculty, staff, student and non-University visitors and scholars by providing information and services related to the circulation of the OSU, OhioLINK, and SearchOhio materials, access to these collections, and assist in the location of materials for research and leisure use.  Circulation desks at each library location serve as an initial contact point for library questions, general reference information, and the central contact for many of the library services, including Course Reserves, circulation authorizations, and access to databases for non-OSU patrons.

The Libraries lending policies have been adopted by the Council on Libraries and Information Technology, a committee of the University Senate. In addition to the Libraries Circulation Policies, we encourage all of our patrons to follow our Customer Code of Conduct.
