Services for Distance Learners: Returning Books/Shipping

A guide to information and resources for distance learners.

Returning Borrowed Materials

Items borrowed from or through IIT-Galvin Library should be returned to Galvin Library in the envelope and with the shipping label we provided.

Because the borrower is responsible for the item until it is safely in our hands, we strongly suggest that items be returned via USPS or UPS with insurance and a tracking number. Replacement fees for items not received by IIT Libraries will be charged to your student account. Please return items to:

Paul V. Galvin Library - IIT
35 W. 33rd Street
Chicago, IL 60616-3793
Attn: Distance Learning

Please return an item at least one week before it is due so that it will arrive by the due date.


Shipping Policies

Library materials will be shipped free of charge to registered/enrolled IIT students who reside outside the state of Illinois and within the continental United States. You are responsible for the cost of shipping and insurance on books that need to be returned to IIT. Items should be shipped via USPS or UPS with a tracking number to ensure secure delivery.

Students who reside within the state of Illinois should use the nearest I-Share institution to borrow returnable items.
