First Time User Registration for Interlibrary Loan
To request an item through Interlibrary Loan, you must first identify yourself to the library's ILLiad system. To do this you fill out a registration form using your Web browser.
Registration has three purposes:
Entering your personal information into the ILLiad system means you will not have to supply the information again when making future requests.
Having your e-mail and regular mail addresses on file with Interlibrary Loan enables us to notify you promptly and deliver materials accurately when
your request arrives in the library.
By specifying a Username and Password of your choosing, you will have secure access to information about your requests. You will also be able to review
the list of items you have requested in the past.
About your Username and Password
During registration, you will be asked to supply your UIC Netid and Password. You will use your UIC Netid and Password when logging on to the ILLiad system in the future.
Your UIC netid is part of your UIC email address (firstname.lastname@example.org)and is
used for remote access to library resources, UIC wireless, ACCC servers, among other things. If you are an Article Delivery user
and do not have a UIC netid, please create a username for yourself.
Choose anything you like. We recommend that you follow good security practice and choose a password that is different from those you use to access other systems.
ILLiad will encrypt your password, so it will remain secure. Only you will know your password.
