How To Request a Renewal

To Request a Renewal of an item, follow these instructions:

After logging in to you Tipasa  account:

  1. Click on "Interlibrary Loan Requests"
    • This will show all of the items you have requested or checked out. 
  2. Find the item you want to renew and click the 'Renew' button located on the right side of the request
    • This is not a guaranteed renewal.  A new due date (if the lending library agrees) will be issued for this item. You will receive an email and the item will be updated on your account if a new due date is issued.  If the lending library does not agree to renew the item, the original due date stands. Items may not be kept past the due date for any reason.
  3. For your own benefit, please allow at least five days before the due date to initiate a renewal request. Overdue items are not eligible for renewal. You will need to return them immediately and then contact ILL staff to put a new request in to another library. We will make very effort to obtain a book for you when this happens. 

NOTE: If the "Renew Request" Link is not available it is possible the renewal request was already sent or that the lending library has specified "No Renewal". Please return the item by the due date and contact the ILL staff to request a copy from another library ASAP. You can reach us at 2-5-665-6103 or umill@montevallo.edu .

If you click a specific request, notes concerning the item you want to request will appear.  You may be told that you can not request a renewal until a certain date or that you can not renew the item.
