Renewing Books

If you are not finished with an item and it's due date is coming up you have the option of renewing your books before they are due.

NOTE: If you do not renew your items before their due dates you are liable for any fines applied to your account.

There are several options for renewal to choose from:

  • Online via your library account (up to five renewals) - log in to your Library Account and click My Account (top-right)
  • Renew the books at the self-issue machines
  • Create a ticket in the Service Desk Ticketing System (Choose Library service - Loans - Item renewal)
  • Present your ID card at the Library & IT Service Desk (up to five renewals)
  • By telephone: 091 493399 (up to five renewals)

When renewing online, there are several steps:

  • Sign in to your Library account from the Library catalogue
  • Click on loans
  • Click on the 'Renew All' or tick the box for the relevant item and click 'Renew Selected'

Please note that it is not possible to renew books that have been requested by another Library user.  If someone has requested a book which you have on loan your due date may change to an earlier date.
