Renewing Materials

Renew IU Library Materials

You can see a list of materials currently checked out to you and when they are due, and view a list of materials you currently have on hold, by checking "My Account" in IUCAT.

IUB faculty, staff, and students can extend the due date on most IU library materials through the "My Account" feature in IUCAT. You must have an IU network ID and passphrase to use this service.

More information is available via the UITS Knowledge Base article, "In IUCAT, how do I review my checked-out or requested items, renew checked-out items, or cancel requested items?"

Reserve materials must be renewed in person at the library where they were checked out.

If you do not have an IU network ID, or cannot access IUCAT:

You may renew materials:

  • via our webform
  • by telephone: 812-855-4673
  • by email: libcirc @

Include your name, your address, your Library Identification Number (the numbers on the barcode on your borrower's card), and the barcode/identification number of each item you wish to renew. You may ask that all your items be renewed, in which case you do not need to provide barcodes for each item.

Renew Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Materials

Materials borrowed through Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery Services must be renewed on the DDS web page.
