Renew an item

You can renew most items you have checked out, unless a recall or hold has been placed on the item by another patron or by Reserve. You can renew items either in person or online, although limitations apply to online renewals. 

In person: Bring the item to the Circulation Desk (Media Center, branch library) along with your ID card. Telephone renewals are not possible.

Online: All items loaned for one day or more can be renewed online. To renew:

  • Sign in to My Account with Borrower ID (last 11 digits of ISUCard number, or Library Visitor Card number) and password.
  • On the List of Active Loans, click the Renew link for each item you wish to renew

Online renewal is available to all users and applies to both short-term and extended loans. Online renewal is blocked if an item is overdue, or if another user has placed a recall or a hold on the item.
