How do I renew my books?

Presentation synopsis: Tips for renewing books. Signing in for renewing books in the Catalogue.

I already know how to renew my books.  Take me there.

What is my "user ID" and "PIN"?

Forgotten your Library User ID or PIN?

Your user ID is the number on your student card, staff card, or Library card.

  • Tip for Nipissing students: it's only the numbers on the card.  Don't include the first letter of your last name.

For Canadore and Nipissing students, your PIN is your date of birth in MMDDYY format.

For other patrons, ask for your PIN at the Circulation Desk.

I just tried to renew my book.
Did it work?

Make sure to check the date due for each item after you renew, to ensure everything has been renewed.

You are responsible for remembering the new due date.

I tried, but I can't renew my book.

You may not be able to renew a book online, if

  • the book is overdue
  • someone else has requested it
  • you have outstanding fines
  • you have renewed the book the maximum number of times (this is four for most books)

DVDs and videos may not be renewed.

I'm ready to renew my books.
