Welcome to the Osgoode Hall Law School Library

SPECIAL NOTICE: UPDATED March 16, 2015, Osgoode Hall Law School Library Services during the Labour Disruption

Will the Library be open?

During the labour disruption at York University, Osgoode Hall Law School Library will be open regular hours.

Will there be fines on late items?

As of March 16: Fines will accrue on any overdue items from the Core (1-day loan) collection. While overdue notices will continue to be issued by email during the labour disruption, no fines will accrue on regular (2-week loan) collection materials.

Will there be changes to loan policies?

As of March 16 all library materials, including the Core collection, will circulate in accord with normal policies.

Should I return my books?
All Core collection items must be returned on time and late fines on them will accrue.   We encourage you to return regular collection materials on time as a courtesy to others. Alternatively you may choose to renew materials online.

What will happen when the labour disruption is over?

After the labour disruption is over, fines will begin to accrue after a one-day grace period for overdue items borrowed from the regular collection. Please consider renewing materials as they come due to avoid fines when the strike is over.
