The Library provides several locations on campus for returning materials to the Library. If you have any questions about locations, please call the Library at 214.648.2001 .

All Library materials (e.g., books, DVDs, audiocassettes) may be returned to the Library either at the Information Desk at the South Campus (main) Library or in one of the Library’s book returns, which are located in several places around the UT Southwestern campus (see below for locations).

Materials borrowed from another library (i.e., interlibrary loan (ILL) materials) should be returned directly to the Library Administration Office at E3.314, Monday-Friday 8AM-5PM. Do not place ILL materials in one of the Library's book returns.

Book Returns
