Before ordering a book through ILL make sure you have done a SWAN / MOBIUS search for the book. Remember it takes 7-10 days to fill your request through ILL and usually only 3-5 days through Swan or Mobius.
Swan/Mobius books have a 3 week loan with 2 renewals for 3 weeks additional each time. There is a 1 day grace period for returning, then you are billed a $120 replacement fee for each overdue book.
Interlibrary Loan books and videos/DVDs usually have a 4 week loan period with 1 renewal of 2 weeks. Overdue fines are $.50 per day.
You are limited to having a maximum of 15 items regardless of whether the item is checked out from the Olin library or borrowed through Swan/Mobius or Interlibrary loan.
