We do have an agreement with our reciprocal libraries to accept returned items, however, we are on different software systems so the item will not be checked in until it arrives at our location. This means that late or lost fees may apply if the item arrives after the due date or is not received at all. Most institutions will return books by media mail as it is the most economical means of sending; it may also take longer. We recommend returning the item to the owning system whenever possible.
