Interlibrary Loan at F&M

This guide demonstrates how faculty, staff and current students can use the interlibrary loan service!

Renewing ILL Items

Before attempting to renew your ILL books, check the blue ILL band wrapped around the item.  If the box next to NO RENEWALS is checked, you will not be able to request a renewal through your ILLiad account.  If it is not checked, find the item you want to renew in the list under Items Checked Out To You. Click on the blue Renew button.  (Note - you can request a renewal the 10 days before and the 10 days after the current Due Date.)

When you click Renew your renewal request will be submitted to the ILL staff and then forwarded to the lending library.  Within a few days you will receive an email message indicating whether or not your renewal was approved.  If so, the email will contain a new Due Date.  If the renewal request was denied, the item will remain due on the original due date.
