Borrower Responsibilities

Managing Borrowed Materials

It is the user's responsibility to keep track of checked-out materials.  Use the online or telephone renewal systems to manage and renew items.

Self-service features in the UCLA Library Catalog are available to assist users in managing their borrowed materials. Through My Account/Renew Books, users can see what they have checked out and renew items, if their borrowing privileges include renewals.

Items can also be renewed by telephone at:


Users should respond immediately to renewal and recall notices; material may be recalled for class reserves or by another user and must be returned by the due date indicated on the notice sent.  In order to maximize access to materials for all users, when a recalled item becomes overdue or an item is billed for replacement, users will be blocked from checking out and renewing items and placing requests until the item is returned.
