Loans usually arrive within 2 weeks and will be visible from your account in Pittcat once they arrive
Loan periods and renewals vary depending on the lending institution
Loans can be picked up and returned at any ULS library
Overdue fines are $1 per day per item, with no grace period
A one-time user registration is required before making an ILL request.  You will not need to re-enter personal information every time you make a request
