Extend your borrowing time and also avoid fines - renew online! You can renew books up to 4 times on the Case Catalog at "My Library Account." Sign in with your Case network ID/password if you are enrolled or employed at Case (affiliates & guests without a Case network ID sign in with their library unique identification numbers). Then renew online, check your account, track your OhioLINK orders, and more. Courtesy emails have a link to "Renew" or check your account–click through via email, and your account will always be in good standing for borrowing privileges!
The system sends autmoated courtesy email notices to your @case.edu email account to help you manage your borrowed library materials. All Case borrowers are responsible for returning items by the due date, and for paying overdue and replacement fines. Advance & overdue courtesy email notices help you keep your account in good standing. All delinquent library accounts are sent for collection--enjoy & use borrowed materials responsibly and without cost, through online renewals.
The library is not responsible for late or non-receipt of overdue notices - check your library account online for due dates, and renew if you have not yet done so.
NOTE: Courtesy overdue notices are sent via email to the @case.edu address. Forward your Case email to your service provider, if you use an ISP or other web mail servers. Large commercial ISPs (Juno, Hotmail) may block these system notices. Check your account frequently to stay aware of due dates, etc.
Overdue fines apply to all borrowers - Faculty, Staff, Students, & Alumni and Individual or Corporate Visitor Borrowers, and delinquent accounts are sent to a collection agency. Manage your library account and your due dates, and remain fine-free!
*Reserve, recalled items, laptops, Bound Journals, and special items may have different loan periods and fines.
*OhioLINK is not a substitute for required textbooks.
If you ignore the overdue & billed notice for OhioLINK items kept out too long, and you return it after replacement-bill is generated, the fee is $50. OhioLINK items are not owned by Case–respond to your courtesy email notices promptly, or login to your library account once a week to keep everything current.
Return on time, re-order another copy if necessary--OhioLINK institutions share their materials generously and depend on everyone to honor the due dates.
At this time all library Fines & Fees can be paid using Case Cash, Cash or Personal Check.Notices for Overdue & Replacement Fees
