Once you have logged in to My Minerva, you will see the current status of your account. At a glance, you will be able to see the number of items that are currently checked out, how many books have been recently returned to the library, if you have placed a recall on any library materials, and the balance on your account. If you want to see more detailed information on any of these activities, simply click on the corresponding item. To renew a book that is already checked out, for example, you would click on the number next to the Loans category to see the list of books that are currently checked out. From there, click on the particular book you would like to renew, then on the next screen click Renew.
