6.3. Renewal and Editing the Item’s Due Date

Checked-out items can be renewed if your library’s policy allows it. The new due date is calculated from the renewal date. Existing loans can also be extended to a specific date by editing the due date or renewing with a specific due date.

Renewing via a Patron’s Account

1) Retrieve the patron record and go to the Items Out screen.

Editing Due Date

Editing (extending) a due date, rather than renewing, should be used sparingly and only when absolutely necessary as it does not check for unfilled holds on the item and does not count as a renewal for statistical purposes.

1) Retrieve the patron record and go to the Items Out screen.

2) Select the item you want to renew. Click on Actions → Edit Due Date.

3) Enter a new due date in yyyy-mm-dd format in the pop-up window, then click OK.
