Interlibrary borrowing

Renew an item

The lending library determines due dates and renewal policies for their materials. Items may be recalled by the lending library; please return recalled items immediately. Charges for overdue fines, fees, and lost materials are billed to your Stanford Library account.

Request a renewal (before the due date) by email. List each book by transaction number (TN) and title. Once we complete the renewal (usually within two business days), you will be able to verify the new due date in your Interlibrary Borrowing account. Most items may be renewed at least once. If the material cannot be renewed, we will contact you to return the book.
