How to Renew Checked-Out Items through the Library Catalog

The library catalog provides an easy way to renew library materials on or before their due dates. However, if someone else has requested the book by placing a "hold" on it, the book cannot be renewed. A message will let users know this fact. Here are the steps:

  1. Go to the Library Catalog (The link to the catalog is highlighted in yellow)
