Renewals are at the discretion of the lending institution. Submit your renewal request through ILLiad before the due date, and wait a few days to see if the renewal due date is reflected. If the lending institution has not offered an extension, your original due date stands. Accounts will be blocked for overdue books. Call your local ILLiad staff member for help with the process of requesting an extension if you wish. It is common that no extensions are offered, so order another copy of your item if you anticipate an extended need.
