Renewal limits

Wheaton items

  • Items may be renewed at any time, and as often as desired, up to the maximum loan period allowed for each item.
  • Renewing an item calculates a new due date from the date that the renewal is requested. Maximize your loan time with the fewest renewals by renewing items on their due date.
  • If you reach your maximum loan limit but need an item longer, email or call the circulation desk at 630-752-5354.

I-Share items

  • Loan periods and renewals are determined by I-Share.
  • If you are unable to renew your loan online, please contact the lending library directly to see if your loan can be extended further.

ILLiad items

  • Renewal policies vary by lending library, but typically only one renewal is possible. If you are unable to renew online using your ILLiad account, please return the item.
  • If you have questions, please email or call 630-752-5843.


  • Borrowers are sent an email notice shortly before items are due.
  • Wheaton College students, staff, and faculty may also view due dates at any time by logging into their I-Share account or ILLiad account.
  • Responding promptly to email notices will avoid overdue items. However, borrowers are responsible for the timely return or renewal of items regardless of whether the notices are received or read.
  • I-Share and ILLiad accounts may be blocked for multiple overdue items.

If items remain un-returned for an extended time past their due date, they will be deemed “lost,” and lost item fees will be assessed
