Book Renewals

Information on renewing books from off campus.

Renewing options

A few days before your item is due you should receive a courtesy reminder email about the due date.* If you need the book longer, renew the item by calling the library (714-966-6381) or go online and renew the book. Certain items, like DVDs and course reserve books, cannot be renewed online. 

*If you have not been receiving courtesy reminders, please see a library employee about updating your account. 

Online renewals and creating a password

Click on the following link to renew online OR to create a new password: https://vanguarduniversity.on.worldcat.org/myaccount

If you already created a library account online (this is different from the account you use to log in to library resources from off campus), then input your Vanguard University ID number and your password. Otherwise, click on the "Set/reset password" link.

You can call (714-966-6381) or submit an online "Ask a Librarian" form with any questions.

Renewing items

Once you have an account, renewing is easy! Return to the log-in page and then input your VU ID # and password. Once you are in your account, just find the book you want to renew and click on the "Renew" button.
