The lending library determines the loan period and renewal policy for its materials. In most cases you can expect to keep interlibrary loan items for two to four weeks, regardless of whether you are faculty, staff, or a student.
Exception: materials from the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) are loaned for six months, subject to recall.
Please make every effort to complete your work with ILL materials within the original loan period. If a renewal request is necessary, a three-week renewal may be requested via ILLiad (not Library Search).
Please note that renewal requests must be placed three days before the original due date. ILL must contact the lending library for permission to renew and will inform you by email whether or not your renewal request has been granted. Please also note that, with the exception of CRL material, we usually can obtain only one renewal per item.
Exception: If the lending library has indicated NO RENEWAL on the item label, you will not be able to renew the item.
To place a renewal request in ILLiad, look under the Checked Out Items section of the ILLiad home page and click Request Renewal. If Request Renewal is greyed out, then the item is not eligible for renewal.
