Renewals are granted by the lending library and can only be processed through your ILL account

First check the book-band around your book to see if renewals are not allowed.  Certain libraries will not allow renewals and that is indicated on the book band. Also, Hostos WorldCat items are not renewable.

If the lending library allows renewal requests:

  • Log onto your Tipasa InterLibrary Loan account at
  • Click on the transaction number of the book you wish to renew.
  • At the top of the screen there should be “Renew Request.” Click on that & the request to renew will be generated.
  • If you do not see in red “Renew Request” at the top of the request, you may contact the InterLibrary Loan office at
