For our first library Frequently Asked Questions blog post we will be starting with the question, “How do I renew a book online?”
Library patrons can check their library account, renew books, adjust search preferences, save searches, and make resource lists from home using our online catalog and their patron account.
In the top right corner of the Eastern Cluster Catalog Online (ECCO), our online catalog you will see the option to “Log in to your account.”
Once you click that link you will log in using your library barcode number which is the number below your barcode on your student ID or the number below the barcode on your library card.
The other information it will require is your last name.
Please note: The “Log in using my” criteria must be set to “Barcode.”
After you have logged in you will be taken to your search homepage.
Please note: Your name will be displayed where the prompt to “log in to your account” had been before.
Now that you have logged in you can select the “My Account tab.”
Here you will be presented with the items you currently have charged out, their status, and their due date.
By placing a check in the check box next to the item to select it and then clicking on the “Request Renewal” links you can renew any item you have checked out.
Please note: Items can only be renewed online if they have not been renewed online already, are not overdue, and there are no outstanding fines on your patron account.
If you have any issues or questions about renewing a book online please be sure to contact our public service assistants:
