If you want to borrow items, you need to be a member of the Library. ISU employees and students are a member by default. You will be given a library card, which has to be shown to the librarian to make a loan. If you are not an ISU employee or student, you will have to join the Library.
While the Library is open, items should be returned to the inquiry desk. If you cannot get to the Library during opening hours, there is a book return drop box outside the main Library doors which will be emptied the next working day.

Reservations / Placing holds
As soon as the book is returned to the Library, we will email you that it is available for you to collect at the information desk. We keep the requested books at the desk for you for five days.
Extending your loan
Important note: you can not renew your items when the initial due date is over. You can renew books up to 5 times online.
If the document has been booked by another reader, you will not be able to renew them.
If you are not on-site, you have to return the documents to the Library by post, using recorded delivery.
The overdue alert email notice is sent when your loans are 5 days overdue.
