Library Account Access

In this short video, you will learn how to access your Sacred Heart University Library account and renew your books online.

You can use your SHU Library account to keep track of the print books that you check out or place on hold.  The account will also let you renew your library books online.

To access your library account go to the "My Accounts" dropdown menu and select "Renew Books".

If you want to renew any of your books, select them and then click on the "Renew Selected" button.  Or if you want to renew all the items, click the "Renew All" button. The system will renew the items that are eligible for renewal and display the new due date. If the books are overdue, you will not be able to renew them and will need to bring them to the library.
