ILLiad is a "paperless" and fully automated Interlibrary Loan system. This means forms will no longer have to be manually filled out when requesting books and articles. Instead, each person will have their own account, which can be easily accessed from any computer with an internet connection. Login to ILLiad now...
Once an account is established, users will be able to login to their account, request books or articles and monitor those requests. Once articles arrive, patrons will be also able to access .pdf copies of requested articles, as well as check due dates and renew books.
Below are basic instructions for the one time required setup of a patron account as well as an overview of the system itself.
