Renewal Information

Renewals are granted for most materials, unless the item has a hold or is needed for reserves. Recalled materials are ineligible for renewal.

  • Request renewals early to avoid daily fines
  • Overdue materials may be renewed as long as the materials have not been billed, however daily fines will apply if the renewal is not requested before the due date
  • Billed materials will not be renewed
  • The length of the renewal depends upon the status of the borrower and the type of material. Normally, this period is the same as the original chargeout period

Renewing ILL Materials

Renewals on interlibrary loan materials are strictly at the discretion of the lending library. The number of renewals we anticipate the lender granting will be indicated on your ILL item, but this may change based on the lender's own needs. Additional renewal requests should be made only in unusual circumstances. To request a renewal, please use the 'View/Renew Checked out Items' feature of your ILLiad account. You may also contact or (317) 274-0500.
