Book Delivery Services

Where to Return Books

You can borrow books, videos, government documents and other materials from the OSU Libraries. We send the books to you via FedEx (we cannot ship to a P.O. or A.P.O Box).

We also provide a shipping label for you to return the item. It is your responsibility to mail them back to us in a timely fashion. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for the book once it leaves the building. You may wish to use a form of delivery that provides a receipt since you are responsible for the items until the library receives them.

Please make sure we have your correct address. If you have moved or changed your name, we need to know.

NOTE: You need to be registered for a current Ecampus course to use this service.

Books Not at OSU or in Summit

For books that are not available in at OSU or in a Summit library, and for journal articles, you can request an Interlibrary Loan.

When you enter your account information, select the Status field which indicates you are either a Distance Education student or a Remote Faculty or Staff. Items that are not electronic will be mailed to you.

Interlibrary loans may be tentatively renewed online or by phone at (541) 737-4488. Please request renewals 3-5 days before the due date. You will be contacted if the library that owns the material does not allow the renewal.
