With the exceptions listed below (see NOTES) most Library items can be renewed at least one time.
NPS faculty, students (including Distance Learning students) and staff may renew materials up to four times, while all other users generally may renew items only once. See the Renewal section of our Circulation Policy page for details. Following are the steps for online renewal:
From the library's home page:
* For NPS personnel (faculty, students, staff), your User Name (ALT ID) is your Network login name entered in UPPER CASE. If you find that your User Name does not work please contact the Circulation Desk at (831) 656-2947 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Library users who are not NPS personnel can contact the Circulation Desk to set up a User Name (ALT ID).
** Your Password (PIN) is a randomly generated (usually 4-digit) number, which should be written on the back of your library card (for Distance Learning students, this information should have been provided to you by email at the time that your Library account was created). If you do not have your PIN information, please contact the Circulation Desk at (831) 656-2947 or e-mail email@example.com.
To change your PIN, please follow the instructions for Changing Your Password (PIN).
Items that may not be renewed online and must be brought to the Circulation Desk include:
If your account is blocked for any reason, the System will not process an online renewal. Please bring your item(s) to the Circulation Desk.
