First Time User Registration for Interlibrary Loan
To request an item through Interlibrary Loan, you must first register for an Interlibrary Loan account on the ILLiad system.
Registration has three purposes:
Entering your personal information into the ILLiad system means you will not have to supply the information again when making future requests.
Having your email address on file with Interlibrary Loan enables us to notify you promptly and deliver materials accurately when
your request arrives in the library.
By specifying a Username and Password of your choosing, you will have secure access to information about your requests. You will also be able to review
the list of items you have requested in the past.
About your Username and Password
During registration, you will be asked to choose a Username and Password. You will use this Username and Password when logging on to the ILLiad system in the future.
Choose anything you like, such as your name, abbreviations, or an alphanumeric code.
Choose anything you like. We recommend that you follow good security practice and choose a password that is different from those you use to access other systems.
ILLiad will encrypt your password, so it will remain secure. Only you will know your password.
Textbooks are not available through Interlibrary Loan
Interlibrary Loan is not an alternative to buying or renting required textbooks. Most libraries will not lend textbooks, and lending periods are much shorter than the length of a semester.
Non-textbook items, such as "suggested reading" listed in courses, can often be requested through ILL. If you have questions, please ask and we will be happy to help you.
