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 choose a Username and Password. You will use this Username and Password when logging on to the ILLiad system in the future.
Choose anything you like, such as your name, abbreviations, or an alphanumeric code.
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.

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the

ILLiad (interlibrary loan) is a service offered to current Gannon University students, faculty, and staff by which materials, not owned by the Library, are obtained from other libraries. There are no fees involved for placing an ILL request. However, there will be overdue fines and/or replacement fees charged if ILL material is overdue, damaged or lost.
ILLiad generally takes between 3 - 14 days for materials to come in. You will be contacted via e-mail when they arrive. Books will have a loan period of anywhere from two weeks to one month; they should be checked out and returned to the Service Desk (no textbooks). Articles are yours to keep.
ILLiad allows us to deliver journal articles to you via your ILLiad account - you don't have to come to the library or wait for campus mail delivery.
