If we don’t have what you’re looking for at Stanford, we will try to get it for you through Interlibrary Loan.

Return or renew library material on or before the due date. During business hours, return checked-out material to our library via the appropriate slot at the i-Desk. When the library is closed, return checked-out material using the outside book drop located near the Bass Center entrance.

Return all library material and pay all outstanding charges prior to your official date of departure.

Renewals and Renewal Limits

All material except for reserve items can be renewed up to three times unless it has been recalled. Note that renewal limits vary by item type and borrower type. Once an item has reached the renewal limit, it must be returned to the library. You can renew your checked-out library material online (except for reserve items) or contact us for assistance.
