How long can I keep it?

PASCAL: You can keep it for 6 weeks and renew it once for an additional 6 weeks.
ILL: It depends on the lending institution, so look at the due date on the front of the book when you get it.

Remember

You will not get books overnight. When you request from PASCAL or ILL, make sure you give yourself time before you need the book. Your ILL request will only be filled during normal business hours (no weekends) and PASCAL does not run on the weekends, so make sure you take that into account when you request. It will take a few days to a week.
