Requesting a Renewal

Requesting Renewals

If you need some more time with your Interlibrary Loan item follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Interlibrary Loan account.
  2. Under the Renew menu, click on Checked Out Items.
  3. Click on the transaction number for the item you would like to renew.
  4. On the top left in red click on the Click to Request Renewal link.
  5. Your request will then be sent and you should hear back soon if the lending library approved the renewal and the new due date.

*Not all Interlibrary Loan materials can be renewed.  Some libraries have a longer checkout time and a no renewal policy.  If an item is needing to be returned but you would like to keep it longer, the Interlibrary Loan staff can request the item from another library, but the non-renewable item MUST be returned.
