Returning Library Material

Materials borrowed from Jackson Library may be returned to the Check Out Desk located on the first floor at the Elliott University Center-Library Connector entrance facing Stirling St. and the Walker Ave. traffic circle. Materials from other libraries may be returned at the desk from which they were borrowed. Please make returns at the desks whenever issues need to be resolved before borrowing again. Other options include using our outdoor and indoor book drops and returning by mail.

Drop Returns and Locations:

For convenience most materials may be returned in our outdoor and indoor drops. Please insert materials gently; books & DVDs, spine first. The following materials should not be returned in drops: tech equipment, VHS tapes, reserve items or other breakable materials. While DVDs may be returned in drops, they and all other materials will be counted as returned at the time the drop is collected. Borrowers returning items in drops are responsible for overdue fines and damage fees and may be blocked from borrowing until drops are emptied and materials are checked in. Below is a list of our drop locations.

    • Stirling St. in front of the Walker Ave. Parking Deck and Campus Ministries
    • Corner of North Dr. and McIver St.
    • Spring Garden St. in front of the Bell Tower
    • School of Music - inside the entrance facing the McIver parking deck
    • Jackson Library - first floor across from the Checkout Desk and at the College Ave entrance; both include secure DVD drops
