Home Tutorials How to Use Interlibrary Loan Renewing and Returning ILL Materials

Renewing and Returning ILL Materials

Loan Periods

Electronically delivered articles are available through your Tipasa account for 30 days from the date of posting or 5 views, whichever comes first. Once you download the articles they are yours to keep. The average loan period for books, media, dissertations, and theses is 4 weeks. Occasionally, we are asked by the original lending institution to return the material before it’s due. When this occurs we will notify you by phone or email that you must return the material immediately. If possible, we will place another request on your behalf.

Renewals

You can request a renewal through your Tipasa account or by calling the Interlibrary Loan office at (701) 231-8885. To request a renewal through your Tipasa account:

  • Log in to your Tipasa account.
  • Find the item you wish to renew in the Requested table.
  • At the far right of the item row, you should see a button that says Renew. Click this.

  • The renew button will disappear after the due date passes. Please request a renewal before the due date passes or contact the ILL department to request a renewal.

Overdue materials

The libraries that own the materials you have requested will determine fees for lost, damaged, or non-returned materials. If you fail to return materials, you will receive a bill for replacement. Any Interlibrary Loan-related bill that you receive will be sent to your Bison Connection account.
