My Catalog Account

The catalog is for more than just finding books. It also lets you manage your catalog account. That means you can renew books, see when your books are due, and see any fines you may have. Plus, you can even use the catalog to save book lists and request books from other CUNY schools.

Click here to log-in to your catalog account (or click the My Account link at the top of the catalog)

Put in your barcode and password (your barcode is your password, unless you've changed it).

To renew: (once you've logged-in to the catalog)

  1. Click the number next to the Loans link.
  2. Put a check in the box next to the book you wish to renew.
  3. Click the Renew Selected link at the top of the page.
  4. Now you'll see the new due date for your book.

Students can renew books once, as long as someone else has not placed a hold on the book and the book is not more than five days overdue.

Books are renewed for four weeks from the date of renewal; so don't renew too early!

Reserve books cannot be renewed.
