In most cases, we give UTK patrons a minimum of three weeks. Occasionally, however, the lending library may restrict a loan to a shorter time. If the sticker on the book you borrowed through ILS does not say "No Renewals," you may log onto your ILLiad account to renew the item for another two weeks (unless the lending library declines the request).
