With the exception of Reserve and Interlibrary Loan items, Smith and Five College materials may be returned to any Five College library.
Reserve items must be returned in person to the library service desk where they were borrowed.
Recalled items must be returned by the newly established due date on the recall notice. If possible, return a recalled item as soon as possible to any Five College library. If you are out of the area when you receive a recall notice, please contact the appropriate service desk (see below) for specific mailing instructions.
Interlibrary Loan items must be returned to the circulation desk in Young Library.
Avoid using bookdrops whenever possible as they often damage library materials. Fragile or large items and video or sound recordings, especially LP (vinyl) recordings, should never be placed in a bookdrop, but should be returned to a library circulation desk.
