Prior to backdating a returned item, please view the loan on the User record.
  • Please review an item’s Due date and Status prior to making any changes. Write down the due date and time.
  • We backdate items when there has been a delay in processing returns (Ex: holidays, breaks, etc.) or a library error. We can also backdate recently overdue tech items to their due date/time as a courtesy. 
  • We DO NOT backdate BILLED items. 
  • Please DO NOT backdate to a date before an item was due or was checked out (most relevant to our hourly loaned materials).



  • Click on the pencil icon(s) located under “Date returned” and/or “Time returned”
  • Modify date/time to match desired check in processed time
  • Scan/enter barcode and click Enter
  • Actual return and processed times can be seen by hovering over the “i” icon after item is checked in.
