Don’t let overdue library books drain your wallet (that’s what tuition bills are for)

Turned in your last paper? Aced your final exams? Congrats! It’s time to get away for a little R & R. Don’t forget to return all your library books before you go.

Too late, you say?

Not to worry, you can renew and return books from off campus. To renew an item, simply go to Minerva and find the gray log-in box for MyMinerva located on the top right of the screen. Once you have logged on with your NetID, you can renew books, check due dates and view any fines or holds on your account. Detailed information on the Libraries’ renewal policies can be found on the Circulation web page.

If you would prefer to return a book, you can do so through the mail. Simply send the item via FedEx, UPS or USPS to:

University Library Circulation
University at Albany, SUNY
1400 Washington Ave., LI-118
Albany, NY 12222

Want to pay your existing fines so you can start next semester off fresh? Contact the Library at 518-442-3601 between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm on weekdays to make a credit card payment or to make arrangements to pay by personal check.

For more information about handling library transactions remotely, please contact the Dewey Library Circulation Desk at 518-442-3693 between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm on weekdays. Please do note that Dewey will be closed December 22 through January 2; for information during that period, please contact the University Library during the same hours at 518-442-3569.
