  • Log in to your ILL account
  • In the "Main Menu" (left side of the ILLiad screen) under the "View Requests" section click on "Checked Out Items."
  • Find the item you want to renew and click the Transaction Number for that particular item. This will open up a new window.
  • Click "Renew Request" in red above the Transaction Information. A message will appear giving you a temporary due date or letting you know if you cannot renew the material. The actual due date will be determined by the lending library. You will receive an email letting you know whether or not the item has been renewed and the new due date.


The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgement, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of the copyright law.

The CONTU guideline for "fair use" is 5 articles from the last 5 years of the journal. Royalty fees must be paid for all articles requested above "fair use" each year. As a member of the Copyright Clearance Center, the library will pay the royalty fees for articles 6-15 copied from a periodical title. After the limit is reached, the requester will be asked to pay the royalty fee for additional articles from that title.
