Some Comments on Extended Use of ILLiad Loans
An issue has recently come up regarding the continued use of a current interlibrary loan book, and what possible options are available in such a case. Here are my brief comments on this topic...
* It is not under any circumstances possible to transfer the loan of an ILLiad book from one user to another. (This is also the case with OhioLINK loans.)
* As for renewing an ILLiad loan, only one instance is permitted online through your account, and only if it has already been marked as eligible -- i.e., label does not have "NO RENEWALS" printed on it.
* Any possible additional requests are as a courtesy, and must by made by contacting ILL staff. Please keep in mind there are no guarantees of further extensions granted by the lender.
* The best option is simply to return the item and submit a new request for same title. It is recommended that you do so well before current loan becomes due, to avoid or minimize interrupted use.
For more help on this and related topics, please see previous entries from December 19, 2016, May 19, 2016 and July 24, 2013. We recommend you also view our ILLiad Customer Help page section regarding Renewals.
As always, hope this has been helpful.
