Clearinghouse Resource Library Borrowing Policy

  • All items in the ODVN clearinghouse resource library may be borrowed by either visiting the ODVN office, via our website or via the telephone at 800-934-9840.
  • Library resources may be borrowed for free by any resident of Ohio or any paid member of Ohio Domestic Violence Network. Shipping costs will be billed to out-of-state borrowers.
  • If an item you are interested in borrowing is not available you may request to be added to a waiting list.  You will be contacted when the item/items become available for you to borrow.
  • ODVN library materials may be loaned out for a period of two weeks; an extension may be requested.
  • To request an extension you must call the ODVN office at (614)781-9651.  As long as the items you are holding are not on a waiting list, you may keep the items for an additional two weeks. If you fail to call ODVN to request an extension then you may be charged overdue fees.
  • All overdue fees must be paid in full before you or your agency will be allowed to borrower more materials. An overdue fee of $2.50 per week may be assessed on EACH overdue item.
  • As borrowers are responsible for the replacement of lost or stolen items we recommend insuring resources when returning by mail.
  • If items are lost or damaged you and your agency will be invoiced for replacement costs.  Please note that neither you nor anyone from your agency will be allowed to borrow items until the invoice has been paid in full.
  • Up to 10 items from the clearinghouse library however, no more than four of those items may be videos.
