Renewals are at the discretion of the lending library. Most ILL books are renewable for a single two-week period. Renewal requests should be submitted in person or by telephone directly to the Interlibrary Loan staff, several days before the item is due.

Since policies of lending institutions vary widely, renewals cannot be guaranteed. Once an item is overdue, it cannot be renewed.

To submit an ILL renewal request, you may contact the ILL staff during office hours: Monday-Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm, Telephone: (617) 353-3706.
