Can I renew my book?

The items you borrow from the Library General Loan Collection automatically renew for a maximum total loan time of 90 days if they have not been returned by the initial return date. You do not have to do anything, you will receive verification of the extended renew date by email.

An exception to this rule is if an item has been recalled. Recall notices are sent to borrowers by email.

Renewing a loan means to extend a loan time for an item you already have on loan.

Use these instructions below to renew a loan.

  1. Log in to LibrarySearch.
  2. Enter your Unitec username and password.
  3. Click on My Account.
  4. Click on Loans. All items you currently have out will be displayed, including their due date. If your item is able to be renewed, you will see the word Renewable under status. Click Renew All or select the check box next to the item and click on Renew Selected. The system will then renew the item showing you the new due date and time.
