Check-out, Renew, Request: Holds and Recalls

This page describes basic circulation policies. If you have any further questions, please call the Circulation & Information Desk at 405-744-9775.


Materials requested via Document Delivery, purchase on demand, rush cataloging, or from our North Boomer Annex and Auxiliary will be put "on hold" for you at the Circulation & Information Desk. You will need to bring your OSU Library Card to check these materials out. Items placed on the "hold shelf" will remain there for 2 weeks, and then they will be returned to their permanent location in the Library.

See the links below for more information on:


Checked out books can be recalled by another user after 14 days. Books needed for reserve or reference may be recalled any time. Circulation privileges are suspended when recalled books are past due. Fines for late, recalled books are $5/day.

If you wish to recall a book, simply fill out our Book Recall Request form online. We will contact you once the book is returned and hold it for you at the Circulation & Information Desk.


The Circulation & Information Desk is open anytime the Library is open. 

If you have any questions about or need assistance, please contact us at 405-744-9775 or at
