Materials from the Amelia V. Gallucci-Cirio Library

Items may be renewed numerous times for the normal borrowing period. However, the library reserves the right to deny a renewal or recall an item in the following situations:

  • If an item is on "Hold" for another patron, the renewal will be denied and the item must be returned. 
  • If a renewed item is checked out to a community user, it is subject to being recalled if the item is requested by a Fitchburg State student, faculty, or staff member.
  • Any item is subject to recall if a faculty member requests that item be placed on Course Reserves.
  • A renewal will be denied if the patron's account has expired. If your account has expired, contact the Circulation staff at circulation@fitchburgstate.edu.

Materials from Interlibrary Loan (other libraries) 

Renewal requests for materials that you borrowed from other libraries through our Interlibrary Loan service must be done through the Amelia V. Gallucci-Cirio Library, as this is a library-to-library service. You cannot contact the lending library directly.

Renew Online
Renewal requests for items borrowed from other libraries through our Interlibrary Loan Service may be placed via ILLiad. Login to access your Interlibrary Loan account and click on "Checked Out Items" under the "View" section. You will see the item you currently have listed with an option to request a renewal if the lending library allows. Click on the renewal link to make your request and hold on to the item until you receive an email from the Interlibrary Loan staff either confirming or denying the request.  Upon denial, you will be asked to return the item as soon as possible.

Note: If it is too soon to renew an item, a message highlighted in red will state when the item is available for renewal processing. If the item is overdue renewal online is not possible.  If renewal is essential and the item is overdue, please email interlibrary@fitchburgstate.edu to request additional time.
