How do I initiate an ILLiad (interlibrary loan) request within a database?
Last Updated: Oct 03, 2018     Views: 70

To submit a request through Interlibrary Loan Services (ILS) directly from a database:

  • Locate the item's detailed record by using one of UT Tyler Library's subscribed databases, such as WorldCat or CINAHL.
  • Click on the 'Borrow From Another Library' link within the detailed record to be redirected to the InterLibrary Loan login screen.
  • Log in using your Patriot ID and password. If you do not have an ILL account, you will be directed to a registration page.
  • If you do have an account the request will be auto-populated with bibliographic details.  All categories with asterisks are required.
  • The amount you are willing to pay should be manually entered.  This is the amount you are willing to pay if the item cannot be located free of charge.  
  • Click the Submit Request button at the bottom.

Before requesting an interlibrary loan, please check the Library's catalog for books or databases for full-text articles to see if the item is available.  Books currently checked out may be requested through ILS.  Faculty may request currently available library owned books and articles through ILS.
