Returning Library Materials: Information for Students

We do not want students to be stressed about returning Library materials. We have some general guidelines below. All due-dates have been extended to August 31, 2020. If you have specific questions about your account, please contact

To return Library materials including ILL and PALCI books follow these guidelines.

For students in dorms: There will be bins in each dorm for you to drop your books off when you return to retrieve your belongings.

Off-campus students: Due dates will be extended for all items through August 31, 2020. Items can be returned when you return to campus in the fall.

Graduating students or anyone not returning: If you are not in a dorm or will not be returning to campus for any reason, we will send you a mailing label and you can ship items back to the library. This cannot happen until campus is reopened. We will provide more instructions when we reopen.

Please do not visit the library at this time, the main book drop is not accessible.

We will need to quarantine returned items for a week after staff return to the building. Returned items will remain on your account until we can process the returns safely.

We will continue to waive fines. Please don’t be frightened if you see a fine on your account, as it will take us time to waive fines once items are returned.

There will be no holds placed on accounts at this time. No diplomas will be held.
