Rental Textbook Returns

Textbook return info

The Instructional Resource Rental Department is located on the upper level of the University Bookstore (Davies Center 230). An after-hours book drop is available during Davies Center building hours after the University Bookstore closes. This is an after hours only drop box – Reshelving fees apply for use during business hours.

All rental materials must be returned to the IRR Department no later than the Friday of finals week. Books may be returned at any time before then, and may be brought back one at a time. A fine will be assessed on each book not returned by the end of the last day of the final exam period.

You are responsible for the books you borrow from the IRR Department — including any supplemental materials that accompany the rental textbook.

All rental texts are identified by a unique bar code. Removal of the bar code will result in a $25 fine or the publishers current list price of the textbook.

The late fine will be 50¢ per book per day, additional holds may be placed on registration and rental accounts. 

Rental textbooks not returned by four weeks after the term ends will be assessed an additional handling fee of $20. At that time the borrower forfeits the right to return the overdue book, and book will no longer be accepted at the University Bookstore. All fines and fees, as well as the publishers current list price of the book, then become due and payable at the University Business Office.

You must pay for any lost, damaged or misplaced rental book.

You may not sell your rental book at Book Buyback. It is your responsibility to distinguish between the books you buy from the University Bookstore, and the books you borrow from the IRR Department.
