Using My account
What is My account?
Your library account is where you can view and manage:
- items you have checked out
- items you have placed a request (or hold) on
- items you've borrowed in the past (for more info, see View your reading history)
View and renew your items
Renew items that you have on loan from a few days before they are due by following this process:
- Select 'Checkouts' in My account
- Select the item(s) you wish to renew
- Click 'Renew Marked' or 'Renew All'
Items that cannot be automatically renewed include:
- items on hold by other borrowers
- 2 hour loans
- interlibrary loans
If you require any items you have borrowed for a longer period of time, please contact library staff to discuss what can be arranged.
To avoid sanctions, please return items on time.
Cancel your item request
If you no longer require an item you have requested, you can cancel the request in My account, or contact us to remove the item for you.
