Checking Out, Renewing or Returning Materials

Checking Out Materials    

To check out Maag Library materials and materials borrowed from OhioLINK or through InterLibrary Loan, please bring your YSU ID to the Circulation Desk. 

Returning Materials

Date-due slips are placed in all materials borrowed. You are responsible for returning or renewing the materials by the due date. All borrowed materials remain the patron’s responsibility.

Library materials may be returned to the Circulation Desk during library hours. When closed, returns may be deposited in the drop box located on the west side of Maag Library (facing Ward Beecher Hall).

  Renewing Materials

  • Most Maag Library materials may be renewed.
  • OhioLINK print materials can be renewed up to six (6) times, provided there are no existing HOLDS.  OhioLINK Media cannot be renewed.
  • To renew InterLibrary Loan materials, please contact the Circulation Desk at (330)941-3684, three (3) days before the date due. The InterLibrary Loan materials renewal is not guaranteed. The renewal is contingent upon terms and agreement of the loan institution.
