Can’t find the book or article you need in the Drew Library?   Requesting books, articles and book chapters from other libraries just got easier!

The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Office has a new computer system called ILLiad .

How will this benefit you?

  • Once registered, you will be able to login to your ILLiad account, using your current Drew Ulogin and password, at any time, from on or off campus.
  • From there, you can:
    • Order items from ILL.
    • Check the status of your orders.
    • Request renewals of your items.
    • Check your due dates.
    • Receive and download PDFs of articles directly from your ILLiad account.
    • With ILLiad, it is easier to submit your interlibrary loan requests because you enter your name, address, email and phone into the system only once, at the time of your first request.
    • You may get your articles more quickly through Electronic Delivery.

How does this affect you?

  • The ILL request form looks different.
  • You will have to complete a brief registration form, just one time, to be registered in the ILLiad system.
  • You will NOT receive an email confirmation of your requests.  Instead, you may login to ILLiad and see your submitted requests there.
  • You can still request items through ILL from either on or off campus, by clicking on the Interlibrary Loan Request  link from the Library Catalog or Research Resources Page. You may also get to ILLiad by entering the url:
  • You can still request items directly from Worldcat and some other Drew electronic resources by clicking on the Interlibrary Loan Link.

Please take a look at the following tutorials, which walk you through the ILLiad ordering process. You will be asked to register the first time you login.

Please call or email the Interlibrary Loan office (x3478, if you have any questions about the new ILLiad system.
