ILLiad Interlibrary Loan System Comes to Cal State L.A.
What does it mean for YOU?
ILLiad automates routine ILL functions by handling borrowing, lending and document delivery through a single website. This greatly speeds up the time needed to process your requests.
OK, but how does that help me, besides being faster and more efficient? Glad you asked!
This easy-to-use Web-based tool allows you to access your ILLiad
account from wherever you have access to the Internet and a Web browser.
After completing an initial profile ("registration"), you
need only to key in your NIS username and a password
that you have chosen for yourself. Your profile information - e.g.,
name, mailing address, email address, phone, etc. - will be automatically
inserted into your ILL requests. And you can easily check up on your
ILLiad requests and get very detailed information about their progress
through the ILL system at almost every point in the process.
The ILLiad system will replace our existing, outmoded and overloaded ILL tracking system, which will eventually be taken offline. However, please note that ALL active requests now being processed in our current ILL system will continue to be fulfilled until each is completed as we transition fully over to the new ILLiad system.
