Interlibrary loan (ILL): Books usually arrive within 1-2 weeks.

Where do I pick it up?

PASCAL & ILL:  Books can be picked up at the library service desk.

How long can I keep it?

PASCAL:  Books are loaned out for 6 weeks and can be renewed once for an additional 6 weeks.
Interlibrary loan (ILL): Due dates are set by the lending institution and should be written on the front of the book.  If unsure, please ask a staff member.

Can I renew it?

PASCAL: You can renew your book once for an additional six weeks by signing into Bearcat Search.
Interlibrary loan (ILL): Contact a library staff member (see below), and they can place a request with the lending institution.
