Alternatively, you can renew your book using the Renew my books icon in our Quick Links. You can also contact us by phone or by e-mail. Renewals are only possible 5 days before the due date. Renewals are not an option if somebody else has a hold on the book.

When you find a book you want to place a hold on, click on the icon with three horizontal dots. Here you will see a drop-down menu with the option to ‘Place Hold’. Once the book is available, you will receive an email ‘Hold Available for Pickup from IMI Library’. We will notify you as soon as the book is available and will hold the book for three working days before it is released to the next borrower. If you are unable to collect the book in person, you can ask for the book to be posted. Include a postal address (this service is only applicable to Ireland). See this short video that explains how to place a book on hold.
