Renewing items online is easy and quick. Simply follow the steps below:

  1. Logon to your "My Library Record" at the Library Homepage;
  2. Click "LOANS";
  3. Click “RENEW ALL” to renew all checked out items.
    You may also choose to click on “RENEW” button of the item to be renewed (no “RENEW” button will be shown when renewal is not applicable, e.g. recalled items, etc.) but "RENEW ALL"; will be a quicker option for you.

    For each successful renewal, the word “RENEWED” will appear together with the new due date. In case not all renewals are successful, a message “Only some loans have been successfully renewed” will appear. For more information on renewal, please visit:

Except for items that are on short loan (e.g. course reserves, current journals and laptop etc.) or have been recalled or requested by other library users, all CUHK loaned materials can be automatically renewed. The new due date is calculated from the date of renewal. If an item cannot be automatically renewed, you will receive a library notice in advance and the item must be returned on or before the due date.

Please note once a recalled item is overdue all items under a user’s account will not be able to be renewed until the recalled item is returned.
