Library Myth #4
Unfortunately OhioLINK loans don’t last a semester. Loan period varies depending upon the library policy in effect. The length of the loan depends upon (1) the borrower’s status: undergraduate, graduate student or faculty/staff, (2) the item type such as print or media (DVDs, etc.), (3) holds by users of the library that owns the item have priority over others.
The loan period for OhioLINK media items is always 1 week. The loan period for OhioLINK books:
- 3 weeks for undergraduate and graduate students
- 6 weeks for faculty/staff
