Why is my item's due date (or renewal date) earlier than expected?

FAQ: Why is my item's due date (or renewal date) earlier than expected?

Answer:

If you just checked out an item and its due date is earlier than you expected, please consider the following:

  • Different types of items have different due dates, as specified in our Checkout Policies. Items with special checkout periods -- e.g. new items, DVDs, etc. -- usually are labeled as such.
     
  • If you renewed your item before its due date, the renewal period starts from the date of renewal -- not the original due date; see our renewal FAQ.
     
  • If your library account will expire before the due date of an item, the item's due date is automatically shortened to the date your account expires. If this happens, please inform a library staff member (if still at the library), or contact us for assistance.
     
  • If your item is an interlibrary loan, the due date is set by the library that owns the item. This typically results in checkout periods that are unusual. The due date should be on a label temporarily affixed to the item.
