For current information on requesting and returning physical library materials visit the Collections Access page.
Books and materials checked out from any NYU or Consortium library may be returned to most NYU Libraries (except Law and Dental).
For Interlibrary Loans and E-ZBorrow material, please return these items with their blue or purple paperwork if possible.
Contactless Return via Book Drop Bins
You will need to wear a mask and practice social distancing when using the book drops at all locations.
The daily screener is not required to access the book drops because they are located before security.
Bobst Library Bins
The Bobst book drop bins are inside the library, at the front of the building by the revolving doors.
Media Returns (Bobst Only)
Only return music CDs and DVDs/VHSs to the bin labeled AFC, due to the fragile nature of these items. The AFC bin is inside Bobst at the front of the building next to the other book drop bins.
The Dibner book drop bin is in the lobby of 5 MetroTech Center and is accessible from 7:00am to 11:00pm every day.
