Renew Online

Renew Online

Don’t get stuck with late fees.  Use our online renewal.

From the library’s home page, click on the online catalog link and proceed to My Account. Users will need to enter their library ID number (14-digit barcode number) or Campus Wide ID number and library PIN. You can get your library PIN from the Learning Commons desk.

Some items like laptops may not be renewed online and to renew an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) item, log into the ILLiad request system and select Renew Items. For ILL renewals, be sure to renew an item before its due date to allow time for us to contact the lending library.

For more information about online renewals, please call the Learning Commons desk at 864-7111.

For more information about ILL renewals, please call 864-7137 or email us at intlloan@loyno.edu.

What’s Your New Year’s Resolution?

Some people stay, some just pass through on their way to class.

Welcome back!

Did you know that one of the top ten most popular New Year’s resolutions is to get organized? Why not let the Learning Commons help you out?

Librarians are available 24/7 to help with your research needs. We can help you find books, scholarly articles, movies, CDs, and whatever else you need to write the perfect paper.

- Come to the library 9am-9pm Monday through Thursday (and 9am-5pm Friday) and talk with a real live librarian.
- Talk to our librarians from 9am-5pm Monday through Friday through the Monroe Library Chat
- Chat live with librarians from Jesuit colleges and universities across the country 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at Ask a Librarian Live
- Call or e-mail the Learning Commons desk at 504-864-7111 or libref@loyno.edu

If you need multimedia equipment for a project, we’ve got that too. The library checks out laptops (Macs, PCs and Eee PCs), headphones, voice recorders, cameras, video recorders, webcams, and flip cams, to name a few.

Looking for a quiet place to study? The 2nd and 3rd floors of the library are designated quiet areas and are perfect for cozying up in a chair and getting to those assignments you usually wait and do at the last minute. Need more privacy ? Just check out a study room from the Learning Commons desk. And if you need a place to store your books while you’re running from class to class, we also check out locker keys.

If your New Year’s resolution is to read more, look no further. The “We Recommend” blog is full of great books, movies, and CDs recommended by library faculty and staff.

Our New Year’s resolution is to make sure you get the help you need at the Monroe Library Learning Commons. Make spending more time at the library your resolution!
