What is Interlibrary Loan and ILLiad?
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service in which the Library will borrow articles, books, etc. for you from other libraries that are not owned in print or electronic format.
ILLiad (InterLibrary Loan internet accessible database) The ILLiad system allows you to track your article and book requests, check due dates, etc. After signing in you will be asked to set up your default preferences for ILLiad. Once you have set up your account, you will be able to use ILLiad to request books and articles.
Check the Library Catalog/Journal Collection First!
Before placing your Interlibrary Loan request please first make sure we do not own the book or have access to the journal article.
Placing a Request
Requests can be made two ways:
- Through a database such as Ebscohost, ProQuest or WorldCat. This will pre-fill the item’s information into the request form.
Use this method if you are already searching within a database or if you do not have the item’s full information.
- Directly through ILLiad using a blank form.
Use this if you already have the item’s specific information. Log in below to make a request. More information on making requests can be found under the Using ILLiad tab.
Use your Blackboard/WebCampus Username and Password to log in.
