Memorial Library at MSU, Mankato is full of great books and other items you can check out, but you may want to keep these materials longer than the date they are due back to the library. In this case, you’ll want to extend, or what we call renew, the amount of time you can keep the items, and avoid overdue fees or delays with class registration.
To access your library account, start at MSU's homepage and navigate to the Library's page.
On the Library's homepage, below the MavScholar search bar, click on the link labeled "My Library Account."
To login, use the 14 digit number from the back of your MavCard for your UserID. The password is your last name.
Your library account will open on a page marked "My Checked Out Items." It will show which books you currently have checked out, including their current due dates.
To renew all of your items, go to the top of the "My Checked Out Items" page and click the button that says "Renew All Items."
To renew specific items, check the small box next to the book's title.
After selecting your materials, click the "Renew Selected Items" button at the top of the page.
If your books and materials have been successfully renewed, the due dates will change to reflect the new due date.
If item cannot be renewed, an explanatory message will appear. If you have any issues or questions, feel free to call the Circulation Desk at 507-389-5931
Some books may not have a check box next to the title. If this is the case, you can not renew these items. Some items simply not be renewed online, or else you may have already renewed your materials the maximum number of times.
In this case, you will need to physically bring the item back into the library to check back in. If no one else has requested the book or item, most of the time you will be able to check it back out again.
You can also renew a book or other items borrowed from a different library, an Interlibrary Loan or ILL, from the same library account pages.
First, navigate to the sidebar and click on the "ILL Requests" option.
There, the renewal process will be nearly identical. Check the boxes for items you with to renew, or choose "Renew All" option at the top of the page.
Please know that it takes extra time to renew an ILL because we need to contact the other library to extend the due date. If you are close to the ILL's due date, you may not be able to renew!
If you have any trouble with renewals or your account, please talk to a librarian.
