How To: Use Interlibrary Loan


Renewing/Cloning a Loan

Some lending institutions allow renewals of the loans they send out.  If your book flag has "NO RENEWALS" printed below the due date, you cannot request a renewal.  Please note- if the due date has passed, and you are allowed a renewal, you will not be able to renew online.  Please see someone at the Circulation desk to submit a manual renewal.

If you've submitted a renewal and you still need the loan, you can clone a previous request.  This will send all of the previous info about your loan to other institutions that carry that item.  This can also be done with articles if you should need it again in the future.
