Checkout or renew library materials

Check Out Items

You can check out books or videos at the main desk on the 1st floor of the UWG Library. This is the large desk near the elevators.

Renew Items

Most library materials can be renewed online if you are a UWG student, faculty, or staff. To see a list of materials you currently have checked out, due dates, and items on hold, go to Research Tools on the UWG Library homepage. Select Catalog. Then click Access My Account and sign in. Once you are logged in you can see the items you currently have checked out, any books you have requested, and any fines you might owe. To renew an item, click on the title(s) under Loans and then click Renew Selected. In the column headed "Status" it will indicate if the book is renewable or not.

Reserve materials: must be renewed in person at the desk

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Materials: To request a renewal, please use the 'View/Renew Checked out Items' feature of your ILLiad account



Please note that not all items are available to be renewed. Please also note that if your account is not in good standing (due to overdue materials or fines) you might not be able to renew items online.


We Value Your Privacy

Please note that UWG does not keep track of items that you previously checked out once you return them. We only have a record of where our books currently are; we do not keep historical records. You need to keep your own records if you later want to reference a book that you have checked out and returned.
