How do I renew a book?


Need your items longer? Renew your checkout period.

  • Borrowed items may be renewed ONLY once, before they are due.
  • If someone has placed a Hold on your item, you won’t be allowed to renew it.
  • Here are five ways to renew your items:
    1. In person: visit the circulation desk
    2. By phone: 214-333-5320
    3. By email:
      1. Provide your name and DBU ID number.
      2. Include title, author, and barcode number from item.
    4. Online: complete the Online Renewal Form.
    5. DIY (Do It Yourself): use your account in the Library Catalog:
      1. Choose "My DBU Library Account" (top right of screen).  If you haven’t set up your library account, 
      follow these directions.
      2. Item[s] checked out to you will appear in a list.
      3. Click "Renew" for each item you wish to renew.

REMEMBER: If you checked out the item using ILL, you will need to contact the ILL Supervisor.  Different rules may apply.
