Renew Checked-Out Books Online

Faculty, staff, and students of the Boston University schools of Medicine, Dental Medicine, and Public Health, and the Boston Medical Center can now renew checked-out books online. Instead of coming into the Alumni Medical Library to renew books, visit the Book Renewal Form on the Web at:

Each book may be renewed up to two times unless another patron has placed a "hold" on the item. When a book is renewed, its due date is 28 days from the day of the renewal. Book renewals must be requested within one week of the book's due date -- Boston University's online library catalog system does not allow for a book to be renewed prior to one week before its due date. Checked-out materials can be returned to any of the Boston University libraries or to the book-drop located on the first floor of the Instructional Building on the medical campus.

For more information about circulating and renewing books, contact the Library Circulation Desk at 617-638-4244 or on the Web at
