What do I need to renew materials?

Valid card and record free of blocks. You are the only person permitted to request renewal of your materials. Please see the options above.

Are there restrictions on placing renewals?

  • Items that are billed, on hold for another patron, and/or have too many renewals cannot be renewed.
  • Items requested from other libraries may or may not be renewable. Generally, one 2-week renewal is permitted for these items.
  • UMaine items borrowed by UMaine patrons are generally renewable twice. Any item needed longer can be brought to the library, checked-in, and checked-out again (provided there is no hold on item or block on library record).
  • Popular Reading items are permitted one 2-week renewal.

Is there anything else I should know about renewals?

Not all renewals are the same duration and it is important that you receive email courtesy reminders for items about to come due. UMaine students, faculty, and staff library records have an official @maine.edu email address and this address should be forwarded if you use any email client other than UMaine Gmail.
