Borrowing & Renewing

How to access and manage your books, ebooks, music, media, and more.


You may return most items borrowed from the library to any of its locations. Check here for more information.

Course Reserves

Course reserves are materials set aside by instructors as supplements to instruction. They can be borrowed for short periods of time and are a good alternative to purchasing expensive books for a class.

Paging Service

UCR faculty, staff and students may request an item delivered straight to circulation/reserves desks, either when returned from another borrower or selected from the stacks.

Fines & Fees

If you return material late, you will be charged! Check here to see how we assess fees.

Appeal Your Bills

In some situations you may have your fines waived.
