Viewing and Renewing Items Out

You can view a list of the materials you currently have checked out from the library. You can also renew the materials you have checked out. Occasionally, you may not be able to renew items because there is a problem with your account. For example, your patron account may be blocked to verify information, you may owe the library money, or you may have too many overdue items checked out. Sometimes renewals are blocked for certain items even when there is no problem with your account. For example, an item may satisfy another patron's hold request, or it has already been renewed the maximum number of times allowed.

Follow these steps to see information about the items you have checked out from the library, and to renew items.

  1. Click Patron Account on the menu bar, and log in.

  2. Click Items Out on the Patron Account submenu to display the list of your current checked-out items.

  3. The Items Out page displays the format, call number, "owning" library branch, due date, and number of renewals left for each checked-out item.

  4. To view details about an item, click next to the item you want to view.

  5. The details view is displayed.

  6. Click Back to return to the Items Out display.

  7. To renew one or more items, do one of the following actions:

  • Select the check box by the title for each request that you want to renew, and click Renew selected items. 

  • Click Renew all items to renew all the items.

  • Some items may be limited to a specific number of renewals. This number displays in the Renewals left column.

A message informs you which items have been renewed, and whether any renewals have been blocked. If you receive a message that a renewal has been blocked, and you have further questions about your account or the item, contact the library.
