ILLiad and Worldcat

 ILLiad is the name of the software the library uses to borrow journal articles (and some books) from other libraries. To use ILLiad, you must first create an account.

If you forget your ILLiad account password, contact Jeffrey Martin and ask him to reset your password. If you have any other interlibrary questions, please feel free to call Jeffrey at 540-375-2298.

 Your results from some databases are set up to automatically fill in an ILLiad request form for you if the database doesn't have the full-text article.  Some databases have a link reading Request through interlibrary loan.

Other important things to know about Interlibrary Loan:

  • No cost to you*
  • Delivery time can be 2 days to 2 weeks; we’re at the mercy of the library sending it.  Procrastinators should take this into consideration and keep in mind that delivery times are longer later in the semester!

 *In some situations lending fees may be charged by the lending institution.  In such case of extraordinary fees, the library will assess its ability to acquire the resource from the lending institution or other source.
