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, online, or by telephone although limitations apply to online renewals.
In person: Bring the item to the Main Desk or branch library along with your ID card.
Online: All items loaned for one day or more can be renewed online. To renew:
- Sign in to My Library Card with Iowa State University Net-ID and password or Open Athens account 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.
