Library DIY

Self-help Guide for Navigating the Library

I need to check out or renew library materials.

Most library materials can be renewed online if you are a Northwestern student, faculty, or staff. To see a list of materials you have checked out, due dates, and items on hold, go to Library Search and click on "My Account." 

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Materials: Most ILL items have an option to be renewed. [See the sticker on the front of your item to determine renewability.] Items must be renewed within the 7 days leading up to the due date. Go to the ILLiad website to request a renewal.
