Renewing your loans in Novanet

Follow these steps to renew your loans in the Novanet catalogue. This includes books, recordings, and Novanet Express items. Interlibrary loan items cannot be renewed.

1. Go to the Novanet catalogue from the AST Libary homepage.

2. Click on Login to your account link beneath the Novanet link right below the search bar.

3. Enter your 14 digit library card barcode and your password (usually the last 4 digits of your phone number). Click on the Login button. If it does not accept your password, contact the library.

4. Click on the My Library Account tab that appears.

5. Click on Loans / Renewals link or Loans / Renewals tab.

6. Click on the number on the left of the screen that indicates the book you want to renew.

7. Click on the Renew link.

If there is no Renew link, then you cannot renew the item. This could be for several reasons such as, your library card needs to be updated, or the item is out of renewals. Most items can only be renewed 3 times. If you cannot renew your item, contact the library.

A successful renewal will return you to your list of items on loan.
