My Library Account: When is it Due? Can I Renew?

The many features of My Library Account explained--renewals, paying fines online, and more. #mylibrary #renew #renewals #fees


Colorful, decorative horizontal line.


Loans menu: active, previous, historic.

Under Loans, you can view the list of everything you currently have checked out (Active loans) with due dates or the list of everything you checked out and returned (Previous and historic loans).

Here's an example of just one Active loan item showing part of the book's title, the author's name, the due date, floor location, and call number:

Entry for a book that is checked out.

It may look as though this book must be returned to its place on the shelf on the 5th floor, but really all you need to do to return a book is drop it off at one of our book drops.

Clicking the Renew link on the right will renew just that one item.  This option will not be available for items that have no renewals or that have already had the maximum number of renewals.


Loans menus: sort by, renew all, pin, etc.

1.  Sort By

Three ways to sort your lists:

  • Due date - newest
  • Due date - oldest
  • Title

2.  Renew All

Only renews eligible items.  Due dates for items that cannot be renewed will remain the same.

3.  Add This Item

Save an item to a separate list of favorites.

4.  "Push to" Actions

Select one or more items from your list by clicking in the corresponding boxes, then choose email, print, or export RIS (for some citation software).

5. Expand All Items

See complete information for all items on the list.  Expand individual items with the single arrows on the right hand side.


Under Requests you can view any Pfau Library books or media you requested; items you ordered from other CSU libraries through our CSU+ service; see when they are ready to pick up; and also their due dates.

There are no renewals on CSU+ items.
