Interlibrary Loan Renewal Instructions


Some Materials Cannot be Renewed. Typical Reasons Are:

  • You have reached the maximum number of renewals for that item. Faculty are allowed two renewals; Graduate students are allowed three; Undergraduates, UT Arlington staff, and all other categories of library users are allowed two renewals.
  • The item has a Recall placed on it, meaning that another library user needs it and has asked us to set it aside for them to use when your current loan period expires. Items checked out to you can be recalled by another library user anytime, and will only be able to be used by you for 30 days.
  • The item belongs to one of the Library's high-demand categories. Materials that are Bound or Current Periodicals, that are on Reserve or checked out manually from the Reference Desk are checked out for short periods of time, cannot be renewed, and result in a higher overdue fine if returned after the due date.
  • We received incomplete information (see the information required for phone, fax, and eemail renewals given above), or your voicemail renewal message was difficult to understand.
