Information about overdue library items and how to return them during the switch to virtual classes.
- Summit Items: If you are away from campus and unable to return your SUMMIT items, please do not worry. Although we are unable to renew Summit items, we will waive any accrued fines once the items are returned, either when face-to-face classes resume or when the semester ends, whichever comes first.
- Interlibrary Loan Items: If you are unable to return your Interlibrary Loan items due to the changes in classes or travel restrictions, please email email@example.com to request a renewal for the items. If the renewal is approved, ILL staff will update your record with no fines. If the renewal request is denied, please return the items when face-face classes resume and staff will waive any fines for overdue items.
- Collins Library items: Please try to renew items online. If you are unable to do so or have no renewals left, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a renewal for the items. We will waive any accrued fines once the materials are returned, either when face-to-face classes resume or when the semester ends, whichever comes first.
We ask that you hold on to any library materials you currently have checked out from Collins Memorial Library or Summit, or by interlibrary loan. You will not be charged any overdue fees. We are currently working out details to allow you to mail library materials back to Puget Sound without incurring postage charges and will update this information as details become available.
You will still receive automated notices of overdue materials, but please know that you can ignore them until either face-to-face classes resume or the end of the semester arrives, whichever comes first.
