The Doherty Library’s new inter-library loan service called ILLiad launched on July 1, 2016.  ILLiad has many features including delivery of PDF documents to your home or office computer, ability to monitor the status of your inter-library loans from your computer, and management of copyright compliance.  The ILLiad service replaces the current inter-library loan system.

ILLiad requires you to set up an individual online account. Access to your personalized ILLiad account is through your CELT ID and password.  You only need to enter your personal information into the system once and the system will save this information for future inter-library loan requests.  The ILLiad link is found at: http://tinyurl.com/gqu7fky
