Renew an Item

Most circulating materials can be renewed for once via My Library Account in SearchPlus.

If you log in for the first time, you have to change your PIN at My Library Account before login to SearchPlus. (refer to My Library Account – First Time User)

Please note that recalled item, an item with Hold, and item in Course Reserve Collection CANNOT be renewed. The new due date is calculated from the date you renew the item.

    • If you want to renew a particular item which is renewable, click “RENEW” at the right-hand side of the item.
    • If you want to renew ALL items which are renewable, select “RENEW ALL”.
  5. Note the new due date(s) for the renewed item(s).
