Virtual Library Services: Returning Materials

This guide will serve to assist in accessing our services and resources virtually.

How can I return checked-out items?

If you are near campus, you may return library material to the Galvin Library. We are accepting returns of all library items, including I-SHARE and Interlibrary Loan items. There is a book drop that can accept returns anytime outside the main entrance, and you may return items to the book return slot at the main desk during the library's open hours.

If you are away from campus or are otherwise unable to return library materials, Please keep the items safe at home for now. Loans will be extended and fines forgiven during this time.  Watch the library's website, IIT Today, and library social media posts for further recommendations on returning material.

If you need an extension on your checkouts, please contact us at with your A number and we will assist you.
