How To

Renew Library Materials

Patrons in good standing may renew their materials in person or by phone or email, if there are no requests for the item.  Registered SMSU students, faculty, and staff may also renew their items online using their PIN number, established when obtaining their card.

For Online Renewal

  1. Go to Library Catalog here 
  2. Log in (upper right corner of catalog screen).  If necessary, create Account using your Library Card number and PIN (which can be obtained from librarian).
  3. Open drop-down menu next to your name and select “Loans.”
  4. Click “Renew Loan” button next to each item you wish to renew for 2 weeks, or see column of boxes at right-hand side, and click the very top box if you want to renew all your items at once.


View Items on Reserve

To view library items the professors have placed on reserve:

*Note. The professor may have placed photocopied articles, personal copies of books or other material that is not cataloged into our system.  The librarian at the circulation desk can help you with these items.
