Requirements for Borrowing

Borrowers must be current students of Wright State University.

Registration/Library Record

Library records are automatically added and/or updated daily. If you are new to the university, library staff may manually add a record for you, using your ID card.



Books may be returned to the University Libraries, Lake Campus Library or any affiliated hospital library location. Although an outside book drop is available at the Dunbar Library, non-book materials should be returned at the Circulation Desk. You may request a receipt when paying a fine.

Overdue Notices

Most notices are sent by email. The address of your WSU campus email account is automatically used. If you prefer to receive mail at another address, you can forward your mail from your campus e-mail account. Contact Computing and Telecommunications Services at 937-775-4827 for directions.

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
