How do I renew checked out items?

Our Auto-Renewal feature automatically renews all eligible items on your account three days before the items' due date, provided your account has no blocks prohibiting renewal. You can manually renew items before this date three different ways:

  2. Click on Items Out.
    Note: You may choose Renew Selected Items or Renew All Items.
    •    To Renew Selected Items you must first put a check mark next to each item you want to renew and then click on Renew Selected Items (below the list of titles).
