Renewing Library Materials
New Service: Automated Renewals
For your convenience, the library will automatically renew long-term book loans checked out to you until the loan reaches a final renewal end date. For UMD students, the end date is equivalent to the original loan plus six months. After that, the item must be returned, or overdue fines will begin accruing. If the item becomes 30 days overdue, it will be billed as a lost item.
Items checked out for short-term loans (such as DVDs or Best Sellers) must be renewed or returned by the due date.
You can renew your checked out items in three different ways:
(1) in person at the Circulation desk
(2) by calling 218-726-6120 during hours when the library is open
(3) through online renewal
Course Reserve materials and group study rooms are not renewable.
If you have any difficulty renewing materials, please call the Circulation desk at 218-726-6120.
