All library loans have been automatically extended until December 2020

As many members of the DKU Community have been unable to return to campus, we have automatically extended all items currently on loan from DKU Library. The new due date for these items will be the 30th of December 2020.

A few notes:

  • If you have permanently left DKU or are taking a leave of absence: please email to arrange the return of the materials. 
  • If you left library items in your dorm room: you can either return them if you plan to visit campus during May, or the books will be stored with your other belongings for you to collect when you return to campus. 
  • If you are currently on campus and have borrowed any course reserves or journals, please return them before leaving.  
  • If you are on campus you are welcome to borrow as many books as you like to enjoy over the summer break.

In addition, any fines accrued during the Spring 2020 campus closure will also be waived. 

We recommend you check your Library account to review your loans: watch this short video to learn how.

Please note that items on your account that were listed as lost before the campus closures will not have their due dates extended. If you have lost items on your account please contact for further instructions.

If you have any questions or concerns about your borrowed items just contact us at

DKU Library wishes you all a safe and restful semester break. Stay tuned for more announcements about our safety plan for Library users as you return to campus.
