Borrow & Renew
Visit the Checkout Desk at any of our libraries to check out or renew library materials, pick up or return interlibrary loan items, or to check out or place items on reserve.
Many items in the library catalog that are housed at any University Libraries location can be requested to be delivered to the library closest to you for pickup. These items have a blue Request/Hold button at the top right side of the catalog entry. When you click on that button, you will be prompted to supply your NetID/password. Once you hit submit from that screen, you will land on a Request Verification page that will prompt you to select a pickup location.
Return your checked out items to the location most convenient to you. Exception: Reserve items must be returned to the reserve locations they were checked out from.
Materials can be renewed online, in person at the library or by phone, 512-245-3681 (Alkek) / 512-716-4700 (RRC) / 512-245-3376 (Music Library).

Report an Item Missing
When a library item is displaying as "available" in the catalog but is not found on the shelf, use this form to report the item missing. Library staff will search for it, and place a hold for you when/if found.
Overdue books or unpaid fines prevent you from registering, and from receiving transcripts or grades.
