What is ILLIAD? How do I log in?

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?

Refer to ILLIAD Libguide for more details.
