Renewing items allows you to extend the original loan period for an item already checked out by you. Overdue items may also be renewed. The overdue fine will be charged to your account and can be settled when you come to the Library. Borrowers can renew their loans in person or online via My Library Record anytime before the due date. The new due date is calculated from the date of renewal. Unless the items concerned are recalled or requested by other users, loans can be renewed up to the maximum loan period. Once the is reached the item must be returned before it can be checked out again.
How to renew an item
Renewal can be done online or in person at the Service Counter. Renewing items online is easy and quick, simply follow the steps below:
- Logon to your "My Library Record" at the Library Homepage;
Click “RENEW” button on the item to be renewed (no “RENEW” button will be shown when renewal is not applicable, e.g. recalled, etc.) or “RENEW ALL” to renew all checked out items;
For successful renewal, a word “RENEWED” and the new due date will be displayed on the record. A message "Only some loans have been successfully renewed" will be displayed if not all renewals were successful.
