Do I need to return my Interlibrary Loan item?

It depends.

If you have received an electronic item, such as a .PDF copy of an article, there is no need to return the item. 

If you have requested and received a print book, which was checked out to you from our Library Front Desk, you will need to return the book to our Front Desk or to any other library in the state of Massachusetts.  If you live outside of the state, you must use your local post office or FED-EX service to return the item to our address:
