Returning Materials

Items borrowed from UH Libraries can be returned to any branch library, any UH system library or the UH Law Center library.

Return books to service desks and/or return slots located inside the library or branch. After-hours item returns are located in front of the entrance to the library and between MD Anderson Library and the Student Center.

Reserve materials should always be handed to a staff member as they have a shorter loan period. Placing reserve items in the book return slot can delay processing and result in fines.

Media such as DVDs, videocassettes, and CDs should never be placed in the book return, as these items may be damaged in the process. Fees are charged for damaged library materials.

If you need a receipt, please speak to a staff member and request a receipt listing the books that you are returning.
