Log into your myOneonta and click the Interlibrary Loan icon OR connect to your ILLiad account under Services on the Library home page Select "Checked Out Items" from the side menu Click the transaction number beside the item to renew Click the red "Renew Request" link at the top of the page.

You will see a statement that indicates “Renewals are no longer allowed for this item”; this indicates that you cannot renew it a second time. Please call the ILL Office (607-436-2726) or email firstname.lastname@example.org providing the transaction number and title of item you wish to renew.
You should keep the item requested for renewal in your possession until you learn of the new due date OR you are asked to return the item by the staff of the Interlibrary Loan Office because it cannot be renewed. If the item cannot be renewed, you will have 24 hours to return the item to the library or fines may be assessed. Items that are overdue may not be renewed. Journal articles that are photocopied do not have a due date and are yours to keep.
Any current SUNY Oneonta student can borrow and return items from any SUNY school as if it were your home campus.
When you have collected your item and are ready to check out, please present your SUNY Oneonta ID and tell the person helping you that you are a "SUNY Oneonta walk-in borrower.” This is the specific phrase used across SUNY for this program. Please note that you are responsible for due dates, fines, and fees applied by the school you are borrowing from.
You can also return items at any SUNY library. Most SUNY libraries will process your return immediately and the item return will be reflected on your SUNY Oneonta library account before they send the item back. Some SUNY libraries will not immediately return the item, but will send it back to the school it came from to be returned. Please account for the delay that may be associated with shipping an item back to it’s original institution.
