Renewing Library Materials

Automated Renewals

For your convenience, we will automatically renew loans of three days or longer until borrowed items reach their final renewal date. For UMD students, the end date for a regular book loan occurs six months after checkout. Other materials have shorter renewal terms.

Items checked out for short-term loans (such as study rooms or reserve items) do not have the autorenewal feature. You must return them by the time due.

Manual Renewals

You can renew your checked out items in three different ways:

If you keep a book or journal more than 30 days beyond its due date, you will be billed for a lost item. Fees associated with a lost item include an overdue fine, a $100 replacement fee, plus $15 for processing. Materials loaned for shorter terms, such as media and reserve items, will be billed as lost sooner than long-term loans.

If you have any difficulty renewing materials, please call the Circulation desk at 218-726-6120.

Interlibrary Loan Renewals

To renew items borrowed from libraries other than those in the University of Minnesota system, log in to your interlibrary loan (ILLiad) account and request "renewal" on the left.
