Online Renewals

Some library materials may be renewed online.

See My Library Record for a list of all the items currently checked out to you and to select items for renewal. (Note: Your barcode number is on the back of your Oberlin College ID).

If the renewal is allowed, a confirmation message and a new due date will appear next to each renewed item e.g.: " RENEWED Now due 01-06-13"

Be sure to note the new due date!
