During the COVID-19 Closure

During normal library operations

If you have an item past its original due date, we will automatically renew loans of three days or longer until it reaches its final renewal date. For UMD students, the end date for a regular book loan occurs six months after checkout. Other materials have shorter renewal terms.

You can also manually renew checked out items

After the final renewal, students and community users will be billed late fees if they return materials after the due date.
