CCU Library Circulation Policies

  • Books in our circulation collection can be checked out for a three-week period. Extended check out periods can be arranged with a full-time library staff person.
  • Undergraduate students may check out a maximum of fifteen items at one time. Graduate students may check out a maximum of twenty. Please contact a library staff person if you need to check out additional items.
  • Books may be renewed once for undergraduate students, and twice for graduate students. Staff permission is needed for additional renewals. You may renew your books by phone by calling 244-8680,or you may renew them online by logging into your library account. Log in to your library account here.
  • The library charges a fine of 25 cents per book, per day for overdue books. If the books are not returned within four weeks of the due date, the patron will be charged a minimum replacement fine of $75.00. If the books are subsequently returned, some adjustment to the patron’s bill will be made, at the discretion of the public services librarian. All fines and bills should be paid at the library circulation desk.
  • All overdue books must be returned before more books can be checked out or renewed.
  • Students who owe the library $30.00 or more will have their CampusWeb accounts blocked.  The block will not be released until the fees are paid.
  • Students must present their ID cards when checking out books at the desk.
  • Students must not check books out for others on their card, or allow others to use their card. No student will be allowed to check out materials using another student’s ID card.  Remember: every library patron is solely responsible for all materials checked out using his/her library card.
  • The library allows the public to check out books from its collection. Visitors to the library may request a library card at the circulation desk. Cards will be issued to those who present proper identification (e.g. a valid driver’s license). Note to SWON and OhioLINK members: please display your institutional identification to the attendant on duty at the circulation desk.
