What is Interlibrary Loan (ILL)? It’s a way for you to obtain materials (books and articles) that you need, but which the Drew Library doesn’t own. See Interlibrary Loan Services & Policy for more information.
ILLiad is the system you use to submit ILL requests. See the ILLiad FAQ for more information.
- To submit an ILL request, please go to the ILLiad login screen (first time users are required to fill out a brief registration form).
- Before submitting a request, please check the Drew Library Catalog for books or Journal List to be sure that the material is not available here. Instructions for finding Drew items are available online.
- You may also submit an ILL request directly through Worldcat and many of our other electronic databases. Look for the link that says “Request an Interlibrary Loan” in the item record.
- Overdue and Late Pickup fines are in effect.
- TO RENEW your items, please follow these instructions.
To check the status of your ILL orders, check due dates, request renewals, or retrieve articles, login to your ILLiad account here.
Note: Books may take up to 2 weeks to arrive. Articles may arrive more quickly (sometimes the same day!) but please allow at least 5 business days for arrival. Average turnaround time for articles is 2.4 days; for books, 8 days) Articles may be sent directly to your ILLiad account, or to your email as a PDF attachment. PLEASE SAVE PDFs to your computer after downloading.
