Renew & Return

When you check out materials from the University Libraries, you will be able to renew and extend your check-out time in most cases.  Refer to the information below to learn more.  


Renew & Return


Most books may be renewed for an unlimited number of times, unless requested or recalled by another patron. Books may be renewed in any of the following ways:

In-person at the Norlin East Service Desk

 Call 303-492-7477


 Online using My Library Account

  Learn more about Borrowing



We print a receipt for all books checked out at one time, indicating the due date for each item. These dates may vary with item type. Should you be billed for an item and later return it, there’s a non-refundable service charge of $10.00 per item. Various notices will be sent out reminding you to renew or return your books before a bill is generated. Hourly overdue fines are charged for some short-term loan materials, such as Course Reserves. 

Return Materials

Bring your returns to the Norlin Library East Service Desk or any of our other libraries during open hours. Ask for an e-receipt or place the materials in our desk-side return bins.
