Out of Town? Renew and Return Books, Pay Fines Remotely
Many times, students and faculty members receive messages while they are out of town that a book or other library material is overdue or has been recalled. If this happens to you, have no fear! We have several ways for you to handle library transactions while you are out of town.
First, if you need to renew your books, simply go to Minerva, the library catalog. In the upper right hand corner of the search screen, you will see the login box for MyMinerva. MyMinerva is where you can check due dates, renew books and view any finds or holds on your account.
If your books are due and you can't come to the library, you can return books through the mail, you may use USPS, FedEx, or UPS. Send books to:
University Library Circulation
University at Albany, SUNY
1400 Washington Ave., LI-118
Albany, NY 12222
Finally, if you have overdue fines, you can can make fine payments with a credit card over the phone, by contacting billing staff at 442-3601 (Monday–Friday 8am–4pm). You can also pay by check, but you should call the billing staff ahead of time to determine exact amount and where to send payment.
For more questions about handling library transactions remotely, please contact Dewey's Circulation Desk at 442-3693.
