How Do I...

Items that are renewable may be renewed up to 100 times with a checkout period totaling up to one year.  If you attempt to renew an item that has reached the renewal limit, that been reserved by another customer, or whose loan policies do not allow renewal, a message will appear informing you which titles were not renewed and why. 

Most items renew for 14 days.  The new due date will be 14 days from the date it is renewed.
