In Person: Most materials may be returned at any IU Library. Selected materials such as reserve materials and Interlibrary Loans may require that they be returned in person to the correct circulation desk. Materials should be returned on or before the due date to avoid overdue fines.

By Mail: Most materials may be shipped back to the Library via Campus mail, USPS, UPS, FedEx or other parcel delivery services (postmark date is considered return date) at the following address:

Book Return
Access Services Department
Herman B Wells Library
1320 East 10th Street
Bloomington, Indiana, 47405-3907  

Borrowers are responsible for material until the Library receives it, and for that reason might consider insuring material for a minimum of $150 per item when shipping it back to the Library.  

Book Drops: You can also return books at our drive-up book drops located on the south side of the Wells Library. One book drop is located in the Wells Library parking lot (north end), and two are just north of the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center and Theatre and Drama Center in a turnaround located on Seventh Street.
