ILLiad allows patrons to place requests for books, book chapters, articles, media, and more. ILLiad should be used to request items from within the University Libraries Collections as well as items not owned by the University Libraries. Interlibrary Loan staff review the requests and the items are filled from within the libraries’ collection or the item is ordered from appropriate lenders found within the United States. When the item arrives, the patron is notified via email.
For physical materials it can take about one week (7 days) for items to be delivered to the University Campus Library. However, if the item title is very popular, of a newer copyright, or is not owned by many libraries it can take up to two weeks to receive the request.
Physical requests will either be placed on hold for on campus patrons, or the item will be mailed to Global Online or off campus patrons, and we will use UPS as our delivery service.
Articles and book chapter requests are electronically received and are generally filled within 24-48 hours. However, if the item title is not owned by many libraries it can take up to two weeks to receive the request electronically.
Requested articles and book chapters are delivered directly to your ILLiad account. You must log in to ILLiad in order to view delivered articles. Articles will remain accessible in your ILLiad account for 90 days.
