Borrowing, renewals and reservations

How to renew items you have out on loan


Use your University ID and library PIN to renew items up to 10 times online at My Library Account.  After this, you must bring items to the Library help desk to be re-issued.

In person

Bring items in to the Library to renew them.

Items that cannot be renewed

Your renewal request will be refused if:

  • An item has been reserved by somebody else.
  • Your account is blocked because of large outstanding fines and/or very overdue books.
  • The item has been renewed online 10 times or more.
  • You have outstanding university fees.

Important information about renewals

Please note that:

  • One day loans and inter-library loans cannot be renewed online. They have to be presented at the Library help desk.
  • We recommend that you renew in advance of the renewal date, to allow you time to return any items reserved by other users without incurring any fines.
  • When renewing online on the day that items are due back, please do this before midnight. After this time they will become overdue and will incur a fine.
  • Access My Library Account on the Library catalogue or MyMMU portal
