In order to renew an interlibrary loan book, you must first check the book-band around your book to see if there are any statements from the lending library that renewals are not allowed. Certain libraries will not allow renewals, which is indicated on the book band.

If there are no statements regarding renewals on the book band, you may be able to renew your book. Renewals are granted by the lending library and are usually accepted only before the due dates passes. Sometimes, if your book is a couple of days overdue, you can ask for a renewal through the system.

If the lending library allows renewal requests:

  • Log onto your ILLiad InterLibrary Loan account at http://www.umb.edu/library/interlibrary_loan.
  • Click on the transaction number of the book you wish to renew.
  • At the top of the screen there should be “Renew Request.” Click on that & the request to renew will be generated.
  • If you do not see in red “Renew Request” at the top of the request, you may contact the InterLibrary Loan office at Library.ill@umb.edu.
