I've been billed for a book that I returned. How can I have this bill removed from my Bursar account?
First, call Circulation or stop by the Connection Center. You will need to have a supervisor remove the charge from your account. If the book is owned by Xavier, you will receive a credit for $85.00 to your Bursar account. You will still owe a $6 overdue fee. If the book is owned by OhioLink, you will receive a $75 credit; you will still owe a $50 overdue and processing fee.

Is there a copier in the library?
Copiers are located on the first and second floors of the library. You may pay with cash or coin, All Card, or Administrative copy card. Copies are $0.10 per page. Visit the Connection Center if you need assistance.

How can I reserve a video for my class?
Faculty, staff and students may schedule a video for use in a particular class, and the due date for faculty may be extended as needed. Patrons are encouraged to contact staff at the circulation desk at least two weeks in advance of their class, as the video they need may be checked out. Scheduled videos will be placed on hold and the patron will be notified to pick them up. Faculty may place videos on reserve according to traditional reserves procedures and options. If necessary, circulation staff will recall videos that are checked out so that they will be available for a scheduled class or reserves.
