Q: How can I renew my library items as a visitor?
Answered by: Laura Sider
Fall 2020

Yale Library is only available to current faculty, students and staff who are authorized to be on campus. We hope to resume services to visitors in Spring 2021.


You can log into your library account from here.

Use the "Visitor" section on the bottom half of the page. In the ID field, enter the VISXXXXXXX barcode that is printed at the bottom of your library card. Then, enter your last name as printed on the library card. Click "Log in."



You will be connected to your library account. You can then select the items you want to renew and click "Request renewal."

Please check your due dates to ensure renewal of your items. Please note that certain items cannot be renewed this way (i.e., Interlibrary Loan, items on reserve.)

If you encounter any difficulty, please contact
