Service Desk Procedures & Guideline

Renewal Policies

Regular circulating items can be renewed, as long as the item has not had a Hold placed on it, it has not already been renewed the maximum number of times, and it is within one week of the due date.

Patrons may renew their own books using their My Library Account page. A patron’s books can be self-renewed during the period seven days before the book is due through the due date itself. Except for CSULA full-time faculty, overdue books must be brought to the Circulation Desk to be checked in and then checked out again.

Other information:
