Materials should be returned on or before the due date to the Central Circulation Desk located on the second floor of the Main Library. Failure to return materials can result in all of your local University Library and I-Share privileges being blocked until you return the items. Refusing to return materials places the University of Illinois' borrowing privileges in jeopardy with other libraries which prevents the ILL office from obtaining material for other library users. 

Since the material is owned by another library, it is subject to recall at any time and should be returned to the Borrowing Office immediately regardless of the original due date. If the material is recalled, the user will be contacted by the Borrowing Office and informed of the situation.  Additionally, certain restrictions such as "In Library Use Only" or "No Photocopying" may be placed on the material by the owning library.

ILL services and privileges are extended to faculty, students, and staff who are currently affiliated with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. One or more of these privileges may be reviewed, amended, suspended, or revoked, based on the patron's record and management of Library materials.

Please restrict requests to materials that are needed for research purposes and not for personal use.  Each ILL request costs up to $35 per transaction with additional costs for staff time and fees for shipping and handling of the materials.  Your local public library is the best source for personal use materials.  Please help us be good stewards of the limited resources the University Library has for Interlibrary Loan services.
