Returning Library Materials

As of March 16, 2020, all items currently checked out to SLU patrons that are owned by SLU have been renewed until May 4, 2020. As the situation evolves we may extend that due date. Items you may have checked out from MOBIUS institutions or Interlibrary Loan are still due on their original due dates. Updates will be posted if the situation changes regarding MOBIUS and print interlibrary loan.

If you wish to return items sooner, SLU Libraries materials may be returned to any SLU Library (either inside or at the Pius Library exterior drop boxes), as well as to any MOBIUS member institution. Please check individual library hours as many MOBIUS libraries are restricting access to visitors.

‚ÄčIf you have questions about books you have checked out, please call us at 314-977-8800 or contact us via our Chat Service. We are happy to work with you to figure out what we can do in your particular situation.
