Do you have a bunch of books due back to the library soon but cannot make it to the library in person to renew?  Did you try calling to renew when the library was closed?  Here's how you can renew material using Sullivan Library's online catalog.

Renewals allow you to extend the original loan period for an item already checked out to you. Renewals are not always for the same length of time as the original loan period.  The new due date is calculated from the date the renewal is submitted.

  • Go to the online catalog.  On the Sullivan Library homepage, hover over “Find” then select “Books, Ebooks, and more.”

  • Next, click on the “My Account” link.

  • Then click on the “Renew My Materials” link.

  • This will bring you to a log in screen where you need to input your User ID and Password.

Your User ID will match your DC username for the campus network.  The trick here is that you need to type your username in ALL CAPITALS.  For example, FIRSTNAME.LASTNAME1.  Your password is your birthday as an 8-digit number. The format will be the year, month, and day.  For example, if you were born on January 5th, 1990, your password would be 19900105.

  • Once logged in you can see which books you have checked out.  Check off the material you want to renew and click the “Renew Selected Items” button.
