Circulation
E-Renewal

To renew your books online:

  1. Go to the HELIN Catalog at http://library.uri.edu/.
  1. At the bottom left of the page, select Your Library Record.
  1. Enter your name as it appears on your University ID and your 14-digit library barcode. Click on the gray button that says “Submit.”

This page will tell you how many items you have out and what fines, if any, that you owe the library.

  1. Click on the link that says “# Items currently checked out.”

This page will list all the items currently checked out on your record.

Note: You may not be able to renew an item for a number of reasons, such as another patron having put a hold on that item, your patron record having expired, or your having items overdue.

Clicking on “SORT BY DUE DATE” will rearrange the items so that the items due soonest will be at the top of the list.

  1. To renew only a few items, place checks next to each individual item you wish to renew, then click on “RENEW SELECTED ITEMS.”

To renew all items, click on “RENEW ALL.”

After you’ve clicked on “RENEW ALL” or “RENEW SELECTED ITEMS”, your record will be displayed again, and for each item will state either “ITEM RENEWED” and the new due date, or “TOO SOON TO RENEW”, or “RENEW NOT ALLOWED.”

Again, you may not be able to renew an item for a number of reasons, such as another patron having put a hold on that item, your patron record having expired, or your having items overdue.

For further information or help, please contact the Circulation Desk at your home library.
