Library Home: Renew Books Online

How to Renew Books Online

As part of the University's coronavirus response, CUNY Libraries are implementing a set of policies to help students avoid unnecessary trips to campus.  

Increased Book Renewals:  All CUNY libraries now allow at least 9 renewals of regular circulating books, unless items have been recalled. There will likely be other CUNY-wide updates to circulation policies announced in the coming days.

Renew materials by logging into My Account in OneSearch. To maximize loan lengths, renew titles just before they are due, not far in advance. CUNY libraries have different loan lengths for borrower types. You may not renew via My Account if:

  • a book has been requested by another borrower or course reserve
  • you have $25 or more in CUNY-wide fines
  • you have loans more than 8 days overdue

Return CUNY library books to any CUNY library. Exceptions: Interlibrary loans, reserve loans, and all non-book media (microforms, VHS, DVDs, CDs), music scores, and other special loans must be returned directly to the lending library’s circulation desk.
