Borrow & Renew

Request renewal for item borrowed through Interlibrary Loan


  1. To request a renewal for an item borrowed from Interlibrary loan, log in to Illiad with your MU credentials.
  2. Click on Checked Out / Renew Items
  3. Click on the transaction number of the item you would like to renew
  4. On the top of the request, click Request Renewal
    • Your request prompts MU library staff to reach out to the loaning library and request a renewal on your behalf.
    • Once a renewal is granted, an email will be sent with the updated due date on it.
    • The loaning library determines if they will renew it and for how long.
    • Requesting a renewal does not guarantee your item is renewed. 

Note: our system will not allow patron-initiated renewal requests if the item is already overdue. If the item is late, please contact the library for assistance.
