Circulation Privileges and Responsibilities
Most books and some media in our library circulate to Ursuline College Students, Faculty, Staff, Alumni, Friends of the Library, Sisters in the Ursuline Community, and Board members. Anyone holding a card from another OhioLINK library, or the Cuyahoga County Public Library, may also borrow materials. Some items do not circulate at all. The number of books that may be borrowed and the length of time they may be kept vary. Most books may be renewed online or by calling the library Circulation Desk.
Faculty, Staff, and Students may also borrow materials from the statewide OhioLINK network. These books must be requested by the patron and arrive at Ursuline within three to five weekdays. Most may be renewed online. Many public libraries' materials may be borrowed through SearchOhio.
Book drops are available for returning material when the library is closed.
All Ursuline College library patrons must have an Ursuline ID, know their ID number, or have a picture ID to check out material and/or access most online services.
Items checked out on a patron's ID are his/her responsibility. Treat your ID like a credit card. Don't share it.
Although we try to send e-mail courtesy notices to remind patrons of upcoming due dates, it is the borrower's responsibility to keep track of when material is due.
Lost and Overdue Material
Please don't get into the position of having large numbers of overdue materials. Many materials can be renewed. If renewing online, be sure that the renewal is accepted. Occasionally renewals do not go through because you have large fines already or because another person has requested the material. Fines and overdue books can block your registration or graduation.
