Using ILLiad to Request Interlibrary Loan Materials


If you would like to request an article or book that is not owned by Kresge Library, you will submit your request through the automated Interlibrary Loan (ILL) system, called ILLiad. ILLiad is available via the Internet 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. With ILLiad you will be able to:

  • Create and manage an ILLiad profile
  • Data will be retrieved from your ILLiad profile for each request
    (eliminates the need to enter personal information each time)
  • Place requests for items not owned by the Kresge Library
  • Check on the status of requests - each step of the requesting process is documented
  • Renew or cancel a request
  • View your entire ILLiad history
  • Access electronically delivered articles

This tutorial will walk you through registering with ILLiad and requesting items.
