Renew Materials


All UJ materials can be renewed twice, unless another user has requested the items, then they must be returned. If you have any questions about renewing materials, contact Brenda Fischer, Library Services Associate, at or 701-252-3467 ext. 5530, or stop by the library.


To renew materials online, follow these steps:

  • Head to the Library’s Catalog.
  • Click “Sign in” in the upper right corner of your screen. (On a mobile device, select the three dots in the upper right to open the menu options, then select “Sign in.”)

  • This box will pop up. Select the first option, “UJ Students, Faculty and Staff,” to login using your UJ email credentials.

Please call Brenda Fischer at 701-252-3467 ext. 5530 to renew materials by phone. You must speak to a library staff or faculty member to renew over the phone, not a student worker.


Just stop by the Information Desk with your University ID card. You do not need to bring the physical item(s).


Most lending libraries are willing to renew ILL materials. Please contact Brenda Fischer at, 701-252-3467 ext. 5530, or in person at least two days before your material is due if you wish to renew it.
