Picking Up and Returning Library Materials
Online access to many books is now temporarily available through the HathiTrust Digital Library's Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS). Through their KU Online ID's users will have digital access to works that are held in KU's print collections. You will find links to HathiTrust in Quick Search and in the Catalog. For print materials that are not available through HathiTrust ETAS, eligible borrowers who live outside of Lawrence and Douglas County may use Home Loan Delivery to request physical materials be mailed to them.
Books should be returned to the book drop located in front of the east entrance to the Regents Center building. Returned materials will take a week or longer before they appear as returned on your library account. While library materials are in transit to Lawrence, borrowers may receive overdue notices for the items. Materials are backdated to the date they are returned at the Edwards Campus.
Renewing KU Libraries Materials
To renew materials, go to the KU Libraries homepage. Under “Borrow, Renew, Return,” click My Account and log in. Click the “Renew?” box in front of each item to be renewed, and then click the “Renew Items” button at the bottom of the list. Be certain to review the “Items Checked Out” list again to verify renewal and the new due dates.
