Need Your Books For More Time?

Did you know that you can keep them longer without getting late charges? Did you know that there are several ways to renew your books without leaving the comfort of your own home?

Here’s How!
  • Make sure your library account is updated for the current semester
  • Prior to the due date, renew library items from home either one of 3 ways:
You can renew your books up to 3 times per semester as long as:
  1. The item has not been requested by someone else and
  2. You don’t have more than $10 in late fees and
  3. All fines are paid in full.

What’s a “Hold Request”?

Unlike a bookstore or other business, the library will not hold an item for you if it’s already here and on the shelf. However, you can place hold requests on items that are not currently available such as books that are checked out, in processing, or in cataloging. As each book you’ve requested becomes available, we’ll contact you and hold the book for 3 days at the circulation desk.

As long as your library account has been updated for the current semester, and you don’t have any late fees or items checked out which are overdue, you may place a hold request. To complete a hold request on the library website, you will need the 14-digit barcode number on the back of your UST ID, TexShare card, or Friends of the Library card.
