End of Fall Semester Return and Renewal

All BGSU materials checked out to undergraduate students and courtesy card holders must be returned or physically presented for renewal by the end of the semester due date 12/19/15.  Renewals begin 12/11/15.

Check your library record under “My Library” at https://maurice.bgsu.edu/patroninfo.html, from the libraries’ web page, or ask for a list from a Circulation Desk personnel.

If you have a problem with any of the items, talk to a Circulation Desk staff member.  You’ll need your BGSU ID and you must be returning for classes in the Spring to renew.  Please do not attempt to renew online or by telephone at the end of any semester.  Talk to a staff member about renewing OhioLINK materials.

 To ensure continuing access to research databases and OhioLINK borrowing, make sure your account is clear of anything due on or before December 19, 2015 for undergraduates and courtesy card holders.  Online renewal is not available at the end of the semester.

Graduate students and university staff may renew online for the end of both summer and fall semesters.  The end of academic year renewals (end of Spring Semester) still requires either returning or presenting materials for renewal.

On Friday, 12/11/15, all continuing graduate students and current staff will be updated to an expiration date of 5/16/16.  All eligible materials (not on hold, not recalled, etc.) may be renewed online before they are overdue.

See your library account for all due dates at https://maurice.bgsu.edu/patroninfo.html for due dates or ask for a list from Circulation Desk personnel. Double check due dates after online renewal that renewals are accomplished.

Once library materials are overdue, online renewal is no longer available. The window of opportunity for online renewal will run from 12/11/15 through the due date of the material checked out.  After materials are overdue, items must be renewed:

  • by phone (419-372-2133) – articulating the barcode and brief title
  • via email to Circdesk@bgsu.edu – providing at minimum the barcode and brief title
  • in-person with the material and your BGSU ID.

Questions can be directed to circdesk@bgnet.bgsu.edu or (419) 372-2051.  Be sure to check the library hours before expecting services to be available, especially during breaks.
