How to Renew Library Materials:

Library books and circulating materials may now be renewed through the Access Your Library Record Feature.

You may renew books by:

  • logging into your library record
  • clicking the check box next to the items you wish to renew
  • then click the RENEW SELECTED ITEMS button to complete the renewal(s)
After you click the RENEW Button, CONSULS will present a screen indicating the status of the renewal. Materials may only be renewed under certain circumstances. See Screen two at the right for example messages after a renewal attempt.

If the book was successfully renewed, the screen will display the word RENEWED, and will display the new due date.

You should write the new due date on the DATE DUE SLIP, crossing out the former date. The library will charge overdue fines for books if they are not returned on the correct due date. BE SURE TO CHECK THE NEW DUE DATE AFTER RENEWING A BOOK!

If a book cannot be renewed the CONSULS will display a message next to the item indicating the reason. The message may indicate:
  • TOO SOON TO RENEW
  • ON HOLD
  • NOT RENEWABLE
  • TOO MANY RENEWALS
  • ITEM IS OVERDUE
  • BILLED
If any of the above messages appear, then the book HAS NOT been renewed and remains due on the original due date.
