Loans from each library will be listed separately, so if you have interlibrary loans from I-Share, you will need to click on the library on the left side of the "My Loans" screen in order to see and renew borrowed items from that library. Libraries for which you have active loans will have an icon of a clipboard with a check mark next to them.

List of libraries

If you want to limit the list of libraries to those for which you have active loans, use the filter at the top of the list. Change the option from "All Institutions" to "Has Activity."

Renewing ILLiad Items

ILLiad items are those marked by a pink slip indicating their due date. They are from non I-Share libraries (typically either public libraries and/or libraries outside of Illinois), and therefore cannot be renewed online through I-Share.

To renew ILLiad items, contact the Interlibrary Loan department at:

  • 217-424-3560, or
  • Look for the unique borrowing number on the item's pink slip, which will help us assist you with the renewal
