Return Library Items

You can return library items at:

  • The Neumann Library circulation desk
  • The UHCL Pearland Campus Library service desk
  • The book drop located next to the Neumann Library entrance
  • The book drop located outside the Bayou Building entrance closest to the student parking lot
  • Any other library in the University of Houston system

Items must be returned in the same condition as when checked out.  Do not write or highlight in books, fold pages, or remove pages.  Borrowers are financially responsible for damage that occurs to the item while it is checked out to them.  If you notice damage before checking the item out, please bring it to the attention of library staff.  The damage will be noted in the item's record, and you will not be held responsible for the damage upon return.

TexShare Card

  • The TexShare Card program enables patrons from public and college libraries to borrow items from over 500 participating libraries, including Neumann Library.
  • TexShare cards are issued by your home library. Search for your library on the Texshare Find a Library page to see if your library is in the program.
  • TexShare borrowers from other libraries may borrow four items from UHCL (Neumann or Pearland Campus libraries) at a time. Intercampus book transfer and Interlibrary Loan are not available for TexShare borrowers.
  • Current UHCL students, faculty, and staff who wish to borrow items from other TexShare libraries may obtain a TexShare card at the Neumann Library Research Desk or the UHCL Pearland Campus Library service desk.

 

UH ID Card

Students, faculty, and staff in the UH system must present their UH system ID card to borrow library items.  Your university ID card can be used to borrow materials at any UH-system library.

Cards for UHCL students, faculty, and staff can be obtained from the Student Life Office located in room 1.204 in the Student Services building.  They may also be obtained at UHCL Pearland in room P152.
