Library books now automatically renewed

Loans from MIT Libraries are now automatically renewed three days before the due date, so long as there are renewals available and no requests. MIT Libraries hopes that this new policy, which took effect May 15, will save patrons effort and time.

MIT faculty, students, and staff can generally receive up to five automatic renewals of 60 days each. However, automatic renewal may not apply in some circumstances (e.g., to material borrowed from non-MIT libraries).

Patrons will be notified by email when their items have been automatically renewed or if automatic renewal is not possible.
