Requesting Library Items: Interlibrary Loan: My Interlibrary Loan book is due now, but I still need it. How do I renew Interlibrary Loan materials?

My Interlibrary Loan book is due now, but I still need it. How do I renew Interlibrary Loan materials?

I-Share:  You can renew your I-Share books yourself, by logging into your I-Share (library) account, selecting the item(s) that need to be renewed, and clicking on “renew” (or “renew all”).  (Information here)  This must be done BEFORE the due date.  If you have waited until the book is overdue, the renewal may not be processed.  You must then contact the Interlibrary Loan desk and request a renewal at crfilllib@cuchicago.edu .

Out-of-state books:  You cannot renew these books yourself.  You must contact the Interlibrary Loan desk at crfilllib@cuchicago.edu and request a renewal.  The lending library may or may not renew the items, depending on that lender’s lending policy.   You will be notified by email of the new due date, if the library grants a renewal.  If they do not renew the book, you must return it as soon as possible.
