Renewal

Patrons can request renewals through their ILLiad accounts a few days before the book is due. The lending libraries set the loan periods and some libraries do not allow renewals. Wait a few days for the lender to reply and then check in ILLiad to find the new due date.

NOTE: renewals must be made by the day BEFORE the due date. If you have any questions, contact the ILL Office at (251) 460-7034 or libref@southalabama.edu.

Overdues

Items must be returned by the due date to the Circulation Desk or to the Interlibrary Loan office. Any overdue charges assessed by the lending library must be paid by the patron. Borrowers who consistently disregard due dates may be refused further service.
