ILLiad Requests

Q: How are ILLiad request different from CDLC's eForm?
A: Some CDLC members use a system called ILLiad to help process Interlibrary loan requests. By sending an ILLiad request you are logging into an individual members ILLiad system and submitting a request.


Q: What is the advantage of sending a request via ILLiad?
A: First off, the turnaround time for ILLiad can be a faster than sending a request via CDLC's eForm. This is due to the fact that someone at the lending institution must manually input all the information from CDLC's eForm into ILLiad. Secondly, you have the ability to log back in and check on the status of your request as well as receive email updates and even renew the item. Lastly, not all CDLC members who use ILLiad will accept CDLC's eForm.


Q: Which CDLC members use ILLiad and how do I submit a request?
A: Below is a list of Institution's who use ILLiad. PLEASE NOTE how each institution accepts requests, you may find that using CDLC's eForm may be more ideal.
Each link is site specific to that institutions ILLiad web interface and should only be used to request items from that library. This is not a public request interface and can be used ONLY by the Interlibrary Loan departments of registered CDLC libraries.
