These instructions work for both KSU books and books recieved through GIL Express.  For instructions on renewing  ILL books click here.

  1. From the library webpage use the Useful Links on the left side. Select Library Account.

  2. Enter the required information. Your Instutition ID is your KSU Number on your ID card. Enter your PIN and last name. If you do not yet have a PIN, please go the GIL Patron PIN FAQ page and follow the directions under "How will I get my PIN?"

  3. Click the Login button.

  4. Once your record appears, select Checked Out Items from the menu to the right of your profile.

  5. Select each item to be renewed by checking the box to the left of the title.

  6. Once you've checked all the items to be renewed, click on the Renew Items button.

  7. Review your new due dates.

Books cannot be renewed if:

  • KSU books have been previously renewed four (4) times. GIL books have been previously renewed two (2) times.

  • Books are already OVERDUE. Books must be renewed on or before their due date.

  • Your record is blocked due to outstanding fines or other obligations.

  • Books are on hold for another patron.

  • The end of the semester expiration date has been reached.

In these cases, please either go to the Sturgis Check Out Desk (Ground Floor) in the Sturgis Library or contact the desk by telephone at 470-578-6202. Or go to the Johnson Check Out Desk (First Floor) in the Johnson Library or contact the desk by telephone at  470-578-7276.

Please note Interlibrary Loan (ILL) books must be renewed through your ILLiad account.  For more information on this, click here.
