Because interlibrary loan items are not owned by USC, we must first ask the lending library from which we borrowed the item for their approval before renewing an ILL item.  

Here are the instructions to request a renewal for your Inter-library Loan items online:

  1. Log into your ILLIAD account.
  2. On the Main Menu page, under View at the left, click on Checked Out Items A list of your current checked out items will display.
  3. Click on the Transaction Number link for the item you wish to renew.
  4. Click on Renew Request on the following page to submit your renewal request. This will send a message to the lending library to renew this item and add five days to the current due date.  You will then be notified VIA E-MAIL when the renewal is approved or denied.  If you do not receive an email within three days, please contact us.

If the Renew Request link is not displayed, then the lending library does not allow renewals for this item.  You can still contact us at or (213) 740-4020 and we may be able to contact the lending library to make an exception.
