The Circulation Desks are Going Green!

Our circulation desks are going green this fall semester! The University Libraries will no longer print receipts for returned materials or Interlibrary Loan transactions. We are discontinuing this receipt printing in support of the Universities commitment to environmental sustainability and in an effort to reduce wait times at our circulation desks.


Please login to My Library Account [http://library.albany.edu/login.html] to view recently returned library materials, see items on loan, and renew library materials; login to your ILLiad account [https://illiad.albany.edu/illiad/] to see a list of your Interlibrary Loan items currently on loan and those recently returned.


We are also working on transitioning our due date slips (checkout receipts) from paper slips to email for the spring semester.
