Final Tip!

If you reach the maximum number of renewals for an item, your online account will not accept more renewals for that specific title. If it is a Case libraries books, bring the item back to KSL and ask the Service Desk to check the item in and recheck it out to you. This will be done unless there is a hold on the item, which will be visible in your online library account. OhioLINK materials must be returned when you have reached the maximum number of renewals.

Freshmen and women, if you need additional help -- ask your Personal Librarian!
