Sometimes the library that lends us the item you requested will place restrictions on that item. This may be due to the type of material being requested, or it may be because that library places restrictions on all of the items it lends through interlibrary loan.

Some of the restrictions that may be placed on items requested through ILL include:

  • In-library use only. You can only view the material inside the library - you won't be able to take it home. You'll get a special e-mail when the item arrives if it has this restriction.
  • No renewals. Some libraries do not allow renewals on their materials. If your ILL item has this restriction, you will see "Renewals Allowed: No" printed on the label stuck to your item.

See our Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery website for more information.
