Borrow, Renew, Return

Borrow

The Indiana University South Bend Libraries serve a community of users comprised of IU faculty, staff, students, and Indiana residents. In order to use our materials, users must:

  • have a valid library card present to check out materials;
  • return materials on time and in good condition;
  • behave in an orderly fashion while using the facilities, following building use policies.

Check out at the circulation desk on the east side of the library foyer. IU staff and students may see their list of checkouts by using the MYACCOUNT feature of IUCAT: http://iucat.iu.edu/authenticate.cgi?status=MyAccount

Renew

All patrons may renew in person or by phone: 574-520-4440

Faculty, staff, and students may renew material online using the MY ACCOUNT feature of IUCAT: http://iucat.iu.edu/authenticate.cgi?status=MyAccount
