Renewals Using the Online Catalog
Go to the UCLA Library Catalog.
Click on the My Account/Renew Books link.
On the next screen, UCLA students, faculty, and staff may log in with their UCLA Logon ID; all others log in with their library card number and last name. For a faculty authorized proxy account, log in with the library account number on the proxy card and the last name of the faculty member. If you don't know the proxy account number, please call Access Services at 310-825-4732.
Renewing items once you are logged into your account
A summary of your current borrowing record will appear. To renew selected items, click the box next to each; a check mark will appear. Then click the Renew Items button; the new due date(s) will appear in the Renewal Status column. To renew all items, select Renew all items from the menu, then click the Request Renewal button; the new due date(s) will appear in the Due Date column.
The message “Not Renewed” may appear next to an item in the “Renewal Status” column. This item may have been recalled or be non-renewable for some other reason, including any renewal limits that may apply, and must be returned by its due date. For more information check with staff at the circulation desk in any campus library.
When you finish, click on the Exit/Logout button on the top/right of the screen.
What is your library account number
For most users your BruinCard number is your library account number. Enter the nine digits that appear on the front of the card plus the tenth digit that appears on the back right-hand side of the card. Enter all ten digits without any spaces between them.
For other users the barcode on your library card number is your library account number. Enter the initial letter and all digits without any spaces between.
Problems renewing your materials online
If you cannot renew items online due to restrictions or blocks on your account, please email your name, BruinCard or library card number, and your request to renew to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will either email you confirmation of your renewal, or an explanation as to why you are not able to renew the books. Only send an email if you are unable to renew online, as email requests may take up to 3 business days to process.
You can return most library materials to any library on campus; this does not include departmental libraries.
The following items must be returned directly to the library location from which they were borrowed:
- Recalled items
- Interlibrary loans
- One-day loans
