ILLiad: ILL Electronic Request Management System

ILLiad is a software program that automates the ILL department's Lending and Borrowing functions and enables us to process your requests more quickly and efficiently. What this also means to you as an ILL user is that you will be able to submit your interlibrary loan requests online and track the status of your requests at anytime day or night. Users will also be able to receive and download electronic copies of articles that are sent electronically from our lenders.  

In order to request materials through interlibrary loan, all users must register through ILLiad, the interlibrary loan system. After registering, users can request interlibrary loan materials through ILLiad, check the status of their requests, and view a history of requests submitted through ILLiad.
