Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery

What is Interlibrary Loan? 

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a system most libraries use to obtain materials (e.g., books and electronic articles) from another library on behalf of a library user because their "home" library does not own the book nor subscribe to the particular journal. This is a free service for our partner groups. Requested articles are delivered via e-mail (pdf format).

What is ILLiad?

ILLiad is the name of our ILL system. Library users need an ILLiad account in order to request items from interlibrary loan.

*Using ILL is a normal part of the research process. No one library can own everything ever printed, right?  Do not be afraid to use it! 

How do I Log in to ILLiad?

For Avera users, your ILLiad log in will be your firstname.lastname. Your password is the same as your remote access password. Need help? Email us at wegner@usd.edu
