To request an item through Interlibrary Loan, you must
first identify yourself to the library's ILLiad system. To do
this you fill out a registration form using your Web browser.
Registration has three purposes:
- Entering your personal information into the ILLiad system means you will not have to supply the
information again when making future requests.
- Having your e-mail and regular mail addresses on file
with Interlibrary Loan enables us to notify you
promptly and deliver materials accurately when your
request arrives in the library.
- By specifying a Username and Password of your
choosing, you will have secure access to information
about your requests. You will also be able to review
the list of items you have requested in the past.
About your Username and Password
During registration, you will be asked to choose a
Username and Password. You will use this Username and
Password when logging on to the ILLiad system in the future.
You must use your UD username for your account. For most people, this would be the first initial of your first name, followed by your last name. (Examples, Mark Smith would be msmith. Bob Jones would be bjones.)
Failing to use this as your username could delay your account creation, as this is the information used to verify your status as a current student, faculty, or staff.
Choose anything you
like. We recommend that you follow good security
practice and choose a password that is different from
those you use to access other systems. ILLiad will
encrypt your password, so it will remain secure. Only
you will know your password.
