Most library materials can be renewed unless needed by another borrower. It's easy to renew library materials, but be sure to have your Loyola ID with 14-digit barcode on hand.

Borrowers may renew:

  • in person at the Learning Commons Desk
  • by phone (504-864-7111)
  • by federal or campus mail*
  • by using the online catalog, from the library's home page, click on the online catalog link, proceed to My Account, and click on Renew My Materials. 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.

*To renew by mail, be sure to include your barcode number and a list of titles you wish to renew. Please note that if another user has placed a hold on one of the items you have checked out, you will not be able to renew the item. Please return the item as soon as you can.
