Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad)

When to Use

If a specific book isn't available at Knox or in any other I-Share libraries, you can place an Interlibrary Loan request for the book using the ILLiad service.

When you use the ILLiad service, library staff will look beyond I-Share libraries to find it for you.

Creating an Account

Before using the ILLiad service for the first time, you'll need to create an account. This is separate from your Knox accounts and your library account.

Requesting Books through ILLiad

To request a book through the ILLiad service, login to your account and select Book under the New Request menu:

The Book Request form will appear. Fill in the form with as much information about the book as you can.
