Ruth Lilly Medical Library Return Items Extended Due to Covid-19

During our COVID-19 closure, we will extend renewals for items you are not able to return and will forgive fines you may incur as a result.  If you have self-renewals available, please feel free to log into IUCAT ( to manage your checkouts.  Otherwise, you are welcome to email our department to request renewals:   We are only able to override renewal items from the medical library.  Please reach out to the appropriate IU library to request renewals for other items you have borrowed.

If you are using the 24 hour study area, please continue to return your books in our book drop located in the IB building lobby next to the library’s main entrance.  We will empty the book drop and discharge your items as soon as we are able.

If you have questions about inter-library loan items, please email for assistance.

Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.
