If you would like your interlibrary loan for a longer time, please email Sister Mary Esther about requesting a renewal from the lending library. Since they belong to another library, they cannot be renewed through Aquinas Library's WorldCat Discovery interface.
When asked for your ID# for user authentication, this is the number on the back of your Aquinas ID card, under the barcode. Make sure that you have gotten your ID card activated at the Aquinas College Library before attempting to use the databases off campus. If you need a password or a password reset, please email a librarian who will send you a password set/reset email.
