Normal loan material can be renewed up to 3 times for all borrowers, as long as no one is waiting for the material.

Short-term loans (reserves) may be renewed in person only, at the library where they were checked out, if no other patrons are waiting for them.

To renew material online:

  1. Click on Catalog Account on the library homepage.
  2. Select the catalog that is appropriate for your material (STARS for Main Campus or HSL for Health Sciences)
  3. Log in with your Stony Brook NetID and password.
  4. Click on “My Account” or "Library  Account" on the toolbar.
  5. Click on “Loans.”
  6. Click on “Renew All” (or choose individual titles to renew).
  7. A message will appear if any items in the record are non-renewable.

Any of the following conditions will prevent you from renewing your material:

  • You are not a registered student

  • Your borrowing account has expired

  • There is a restriction on your borrowing record

  • You owe the maximum allowed for your patron status type

  • The material has been recalled by another patron or reserve

  • There is a hold on the material

  • You have reached the renewal limit

  • The material itself is non-renewable
