Interlibrary Loan connects you with materials from other libraries when we do not have what you need in our collection. ILL items are different from regular USask Library items and must be renewed in a different manner.

This content applies to:

  • Anyone with a USask library account

The USask Library's Resource Sharing team must ask the lending library for a renewal. 

  1. A week before the due date, contact the Resource Sharing team directly to request a renewal for any of your physical interlibrary loan items.
    1. You can email (, call ((306) 966-5963), or submit a form request.
  2. The Resource Sharing team will contact the lending library to secure a renewal date.
  3. The Resource Sharing team will contact you with a new due date if the renewal is approved.
