Renewals & Recalls
General Collection Books and other library items can generally be renewed.

Library items can be renewed online via WorldCat WMS with your RMU Student ID or by contacting the Library Help Desk via phone or email.

Paying overdue fines
Library fines are payable at the Library Help Desk. If library fines remain unpaid until the end of the semester, your student record may be blocked, which will restrict you from registering for classes.

If you suspect you have lost a book or other library item, contact the Library Help Desk as soon as possible.
