Billed, Lost or Damaged Materials

WSU Dunbar and Lake Campus Library: The minimum replacement fee for any lost or damaged book, periodical, or media item is 1) $75 plus a $25 processing fee plus fines or 2) a billing fee, if applicable.

OhioLINK replacement fees are $75 plus a $35 non-refundable processing fee plus fines, if any.

SearchOhio replacement fees are $25 plus a $25 non-refundable processing fee.

If the original item is returned after the replacement costs and processing fees have been paid, the borrower may receive some reduction of these charges. The Head of Resource Delivery Services determines whether a refund can be issued and the amount.

If a damaged item is repairable, the library will determine the cost of repair and bill accordingly.

*Items may be renewed if there are no other requests for them
