Borrowed Items & Interlibrary Loan 

  • The Libraries has automatically renewed all items until September 4, 2020. You will not receive a fine, block or hold for overdue books or Interlibrary Loan items due before this time.
  • Books, including ILL items, may be returned at the book drop box outside of Bird Library or Carnegie Library; or you can bring them back when you return to campus.
  • If you have library items checked out but do not plan to return to Syracuse in the fall, please email
  • Interlibrary Loan requests for books or physical items cannot be processed at this time since libraries across the country are currently closed, but we are still filling requests for digital articles.

We remain absolutely committed to supporting students, faculty and staff as they transition to online learning and teaching, and undertake the research mission of the University. Libraries’ staff are working remotely and following the University’s protocol around Coronavirus
