Can I renew book loans online?

Yes, from within the library catalogue, if you are logged in to the College website. Your loans are listed under the Accounts tab. Just tick the relevant titles, and Renew. Self-renewal isn't possible if the item is already overdue, or has been requested by another member. Please contact the library.
