OU students, faculty, and staff: looking to renew multiple items?

You will need to renew your materials one at a time.

Unfortunately, Library OneSearch does not enable users to renew their checked-out items in bulk. Renewals will have to be done individually (i.e., one item at a time). If you have any issues with the renewal process or need to have all of your items renewed simultaneously, please contact Access Services at and/or 248-370-4425.

OU alumni and guests: looking to renew borrowed materials?

You will need to contact Access Services.

Unfortunately, alumni and guest users are not able to renew borrowed materials online (due to a lack of login credentials to use the online system). To renew borrowed materials, please contact Access Services at and/or 248-370-4425 to have your items renewed.
