Interlibrary Loan: Borrowing Materials From Other Libraries

ILLiad Basics

ILLiad is a system that allows Knox College faculty, staff, and students to request materials from thousands of libraries in the United States (and around the world). You can use ILLiad to request:

  • Articles
  • Books not available via I-Share, except for required course texts.
  • Non-print materials (DVDs, videotapes, audio, microfilm)

ILLiad Policies

  • All ILLiad materials must be picked up and returned at the circulation desk in Seymour Library
  • Lending periods and renewals are dictated by the lending library
  • Films obtained via ILLiad cannot be place on Reserve
  • Articles are sent as pdfs and are yours to keep
