Certain materials cannot be renewed, including course reserves and career books from the Art, Architecture, and Engineering Library. 

Renewals are typically unlimited unless someone else has requested the item, though there are some exceptions:

  • Undergraduates, graduate students, and staff are limited to 6 renewals for Art, Architecture, and Engineering Library and Shapiro Library materials
  • Students cannot renew Askwith Media Library items
  • Music Library CDs and DVDs are limited to 1 renewal

Renewing interlibrary loans 

You can request to renew interlibrary loan items via ILLiad starting 5 days before your due date, and up to 2 days afterward. Like loan periods, renewals are decided by the lending library. We will notify you by email of their decision. 

If an item is more than 2 days overdue, contact us at to request a renewal.
