Wheaton items

  • Renewal limits vary, but books and most other items can be renewed 3 times. 
  • If you reach your renewal limit but need an item longer, email circulation.desk@wheaton.edu or contact a circulation supervisor at 630-752-5620.

I-Share items

  • Faculty are allowed 6 renewals
  • Students and staff are allowed 3 renewals 
  • If you reach your renewal limit, please contact the I-Share library directly to see if an exception is possible.

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 interlibrary.loan@wheaton.edu or call 630-752-5843.

Notifications

  • 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 or excessive overdue fees.

Overdue Fees

Overdue fees are determined and assessed when items are returned or renewed late:

  • Books, music scores, and most other circulating items - $0.50 per day per item, not assessed until item is 10 days overdue, minimum fee payable is $5.00, maximum fee payable is $10.
  • DVDs, CDs - $1 per day per item
  • Course Reserve items - $1 per hour per item
  • iPads & laptops - $10 per hour per item
  • Other reserve items - $1 per hour per item

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