ILL requests may be submitted by any current student, faculty, or staff member. Guest patrons, secondary card holders, students auditing a class, and people not affiliated with UMW are not eligible for this service. Most ILL requests take 1 – 2 weeks to be processed and received, although some requests may take longer.
Journal Articles: If you requested a journal article, a PDF copy will be sent electronically to your ILL account where it can be accessed by clicking on ‘View Electronically Received Articles’. It will be your responsibility to print or download each requested article within 30 days of receipt.
Books, Microforms, etc.: Books and microforms may be picked up at the Circulation Desk in Simpson Library. Some materials are designated library-use only by the lending library and must remain at the library for the entire loan period.
ILL Items labeled NO RENEWAL: If you need the item for longer, but the label says NO RENEWAL, please email email@example.com to explain the issue.
All Other ILL Items: To request a renewal, login to the ILL system, click on the ‘Checked Out Items’ link and then click on the Transaction Number of the item you wish to renew. If an item is renewable, a link will be shown at the top of the page. You will be notified by email of the renewal due date or denial of the renewal request.
Renewal requests are allowed from one to seven days before the book is due. If you have any questions or problems, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
