Logging in to Illiad

In order to use InterLibrary Loan services, you will need a Library barcode (which you can activate at the 2nd floor Circulation Desk).

NOTE: Please plan ahead! Due to automated system processes, barcodes that are edited or activated BEFORE 8pm will be available to log in to the ILL system after 8am the following morning. Barcodes that are edited or activated AFTER 8pm will be available to log in to the ILL system after 8am on the second day following the edit or activation.


  • When you go to ILLiad, you will need to log in with your last name (all lower case letters) and Library barcode.

  • For the first time logging in, you will need to fill out a "First Time User Registration" with your contact information and preferences. This registration sets up your ILL account and needs to be filled out only once.  However be sure to update it when necessary, for example, if your email address changes.

  • Please report any ILL login issues to
