Know the Libraries
Please have your active PUID card available to check out any material from the libraries. Notify the libraries if your PUID is lost or stolen. Notify the libraries if material is lost or stolen. If you do not have an active PUID, you may be eligible for a visitor's borrowing card. Ask staff at any Circulation Desk for details or check Visitor Information.
There is currently no limit on the number of items you can have checked out to your account at one time.
Current faculty/staff/students with an active PUID and visitors with an active borrowing card may request materials from the Libraries for pickup at any campus location.

Don't want to come inside? There is a book return built into the Stewart Center building at the north entrance double doors, facing Heavilon Hall. Simply pull the metal lip to open, drop in your books (one at a time please - books can get stuck), and you're done!
