If your library subscribes to Tipasa and Tipasa and Circulation integration is enabled, the Renew option will only display for borrowed items if Tipasa’s Patron Request Management settings allow patrons to renew ILL requests online.

  • The item’s due date in My Account will match the user’s Circulation account.
  • For the initial checkout, integration sets the item’s due date to the more restrictive of the Circulation Loan Policy and Tipasa due date including any due date offset set in Tipasa’s Patron Settings.
    • The user will not see a new due date for borrowed items after requesting a renewal of borrowed items in My Account.
      • Renewal requests will be submitted directly to the lending library for approval.
      • If the lender does not renew the request, the initial due date will not be updated.
      • If the lender approves the renewal, library staff must update the borrowed item’s due date manually in WorldShare Circulation after which the new due date will appear to the user in My Account.
