Renewals, Recalls, Copyright, etc

How long can I use an interlibrary loan book? 

The due date, set by the lending library, is on the book wrap. 

Can I renew the ILL book?

Submit renewal request 4 days before the due date.  If refused or no approval response, then book must be returned by the due date. Overdue fees apply.

I received a "recall" email?

If the lending library wants the book back prior to the due date, you must return it immediately. There is a $25+ fine if not returned as instructed.
