Renew ILL items with My ILL Requests. Look for the "Renew" link in the right column. Some lenders do not allow renewals - plan accordingly.
The Law Library will not borrow study aids or casebooks through ILL. Also, some other materials (e.g. rare books, DVDs) are rarely available via ILL.
It can take up to 2 weeks (or more) for items to arrive. Items from other University of California libraries frequently arrive within a few days.
Overdue items, lost items, and damaged items might incur charges, depending on the policy of the lending library. You are responsible for all of these types of charges, which can include processing fees in addition to the replacement cost of lost or damaged items.
