Return books to the Circulation Desk. Return recalled items, directly to the Circulation Desk attendant. When the library is closed, books may be placed into the depository slots outside of the library entrance. Receipts for returned items are available upon request.
Renewals may be requested in person, by phone or online. Any item that has reached its renewal limit, must be brought to the library.
Requesting Online Renewals:
The new due date will appear in the right column of the page under Renewal Status. If the items have not been renewed, contact Circulation at (203) 251-8500.
Reminder notices are sent seven (7) days prior to the item coming due. Only one reminder notice is sent. If the item(s) are not returned or renewed by the due date, an overdue notice is sent. All library circulation notices are distributed via email to your University email account. The University has partnered with Google Apps for Education for its e-mail system. See the Google Apps @ UConn site for more information. You will need to use your NetID to log in ( http://netid.uconn.edu). If you use an email address other than the University email address, you need to forward your UConn email to your non-University email address.
If you need assistance, please call Circulation at 203 251-8500.
Long overdue books are billed at $95 per item plus a $15 nonrefundable late return/billing fee. The $95 replacement cost is refundable, if the item is returned within one year of the billing date.
Overdue recalled books are charged $5.00 a day/item; maximum of $50.

Checks are payable to the University of Connecticut. No payments are accepted at the library. Library charges for students appear on the next semester's fee bill.

The Community Borrower card is valid for one year. The Community Borrower card does NOT provide off-campus access to UConn's electronic subscription resources (e.g., databases).
Recent UConn graduates may still be in the system and able to borrow materials for a few weeks, but otherwise there are no other privileges for alumni, except as mentioned above.
The identity of the borrower or
requestor of a library item and the information contained in
Circulation System patron records are confidential as mandated by State of Connecticut Public Act #76-421.
Such information is maintained in computerized files in order to enable Circulation Services to conduct its normal business:
Access to an individual’s record is available to:
Access to individual records by any other party, including other library staff who have "no need to know," other University staff, other state or federal employees, or other library patrons, is prohibited.
In unusual circumstance, the Circulation/Reserve Staff member may act as an intermediary between the borrower and requestor of an item, but the identity of both the borrower and the requestor must be preserved at all times.
Circulation Services is committed to the protection of the right to privacy of all library patrons and the prevention of harassment by other borrowers.
