How do I renew a library book online?


We're so glad you're enjoying your materials!

As of February 2023, two days before your due date your book will automatically renew for another 14 days!  Unfortunately  you won't be notified of this change.

To check the status of your loans, or to renew your library materials online manually, go to the OC Library's home page.

  1. On our "Borrowing" Services page, select the link that says, "Renew Books." This will take you to the OneSearch home page 
  2. In the upper right-hand corner, select Sign In.  Select that you are a current student/employee and enter your OC email address when/if prompted. This should log you in to our library account! 
  3. The default screen for My Library Account is OVERVIEW.  There’s a RENEW ALL option at the top of the Loans section.
  4. Otherwise, click on Loans from the OVERVIEW screen and then click the RENEW button to the right of each title you’d like to renew.

Voila! Your books are renewed. Please make a note of your new due date.

If a renewal attempt fails it is probably because you have already reached the maximum time you can have the book (28 days) or another student has requested and is waiting for the book to be returned. If you still need the material, please email and we'll see if we can help you further.
