Items from the main stacks on the 2nd and 3rd floors may be renewed three times, upon request (six renewals are allowed for graduate students). Many special material categories are NOT renewable: CDs, videos/DVDs, Children's Literature and Curriculum Collections, Humboldt County Collection and Archives, government documents, and periodicals. Items which another campus borrower has requested are also not renewable. Renewal of Interlibrary Loan materials must be requested on the Interlibrary Loan page linked on the Library homepage.

Renewals of HSU Library materials may be performed online, by telephone, or in person at the Circulation Desk. The new due date will be one additional loan period from the date of renewal.


To access a list of your library materials, click on “Renew a Book” (located under Quick Links on the left side of the Library's homepage). You may also access this login page by using the “My Account” link that appears at the top of many of our web pages. You will be asked to enter the barcode number from the back of your HSU ID card (starts with 2 0300 00--- ----). Enter these numbers without the spaces, and then your last name. A list of items checked out to you will appear, and a box at the left of each item can be clicked to select items you wish to renew. Click on the "Renew Items" button at the bottom of the screen to proceed with the renewal. At this point a new "Renewal Status" column appears to the right of the item list, indicating a new due date for each item if it has been successfully renewed. Be sure to verify renewal by checking this column. Reasons for non-renewal include: hold placed by another borrower, item excessively overdue, item not renewable. Be sure to click on "logout" button at top of screen when you are finished, to prevent access by other users to your account information. Call the Circulation Office at 826-3431 with any questions.


Items may be renewed by telephone at (707) 826-3431 when the Library is open. Have your HSU ID handy; you will be asked for the barcode number on the back of the ID. To renew Reserve items, call 826-3431.


Items may also be renewed at the Circulation Desk, with or without bringing in the books. Again, your HSU ID Card barcode will be required to access your checkout record.
