This Is Auburn Auburn University Libraries Renewals
Hours of Operation (Circulation)


You can renew items online or by presenting each item to the circulation desk.  Special Borrowers and Corporate Users are allowed one online renewal provided they have not exceeded their checkout limit.  All other patrons are allowed three online renewals.  You cannot renew online if you have exceeded your item limit, if someone has placed a recall on one of your items, or if you have reached the maximum fine limit for your patron group.  Bound journals, 3-day reserves, and 7-day reserves cannot be renewed and can only be checked out again after 1 day.

To renew items online:

  • Go to AubieCat login page.
  • At the bottom of the page, you will need to type your 12-digit patron barcode in the "Patron Barcode" box and your last name in the "Last Name" box.  Follow the instructions at the top of the page to identify what your patron barcode is.  Your patron information should appear.
  • You should see renewal boxes to the left of each item.  When you see renewal boxes, click on the renewal box for each item you want to renew.
  • Click the "Renew Items" box at the bottom of the list.
  • Check the box to the right of each item to verify the renewal status.  For each book that is renewed, a new due date is shown under the "Renewal Status" box beside each item that has been renewed.

If "Not Renewed" displays or there are no renewal boxes displayed, then you must bring the item to the branch where you originally checked out the item.  Your items have not been renewed.  Items that do not show as renewed or do not have renewal boxes displayed may either be recalled or you may have reached the maximum number of renewals allowed for your patron group. 

Special Borrowers cannot renew any materials if they have any overdue or lost item fines or fees.
