Borrowing and Renewing

Renew Your Books

 Renew books from Trinity

  • From the library home page, click "My Library Account" on the right hand side of the page under the heading "My Accounts."
  • Login with the user name and password you created.
  • Click "Checked Out Items" on the right hand side.
  • In the farthest right column of the information given for each of your check out items, you will see small boxes.
  • To renew an item, or multiple items, check the item's box and click "Renew Selected Items" at the bottom of the page.
  • Your items should now present a renewed due date.
  • However, if you have renewed an item the maximum amount of times you will instead see this message: "Renew Request failed!" In this case, you are unable to renew that item.

Blocked Accounts

If you have trouble requesting books through I-Share, checking out books, or renewing, your account may be blocked. Your account could be blocked for the following reasons:

  • Fines greater than $5 on material from Rolfing Library or I-Share libraries (this includes charges for interlibrary loan articles)
  • A book has gone to lost status, instead of overdue status (after 28 days)
  • Your account has been suspended (usually because of lost books or large unpaid fine amounts). 
  • 3 or more items requested from the Trinity Library. After requests are processed the block will be cleared. If you need to continue requesting from I-Share libraries, we recommend canceling one of your TIU books, making your requests, and then placing the request for the third TIU item.
  • 10 or more overdue items on your account
  • "Expired in System" - Your account has not been updated in our system. Please stop by the circulation desk with your driver's license or valid id to update your account.  

Please contact Circulation or Becky Frank with questions and to resolve blocked accounts: circ@tiu.edu or rfrank@tiu.edu or (847)317-4020.
