You will only need to create your ILLiad account once and it only takes 2 steps!
1. Every time that you access ILLiad you will be prompted to log in using your standard Millikin username and password.
2. The first time that you access ILLiad, the account creating screen will be displayed. Fill out the information (your name, Millikin ID, and e-mail address should be pre-populated): phone, address (home or campus), student or faculty status, and your major or department and the click "Submit Information."
You are now ready to use ILLiad for interlibrary loan requests.
Every time that you access ILLiad you will be prompted to log in to myMillikin using your Millikin username and password, unless you are already logged in to myMillikin.
Navigation in ILLiad is provided through the links in blue menu bar.
Under the menu there are some quick action items.
All articles in ILLiad are in PDF format. It is always a good idea to save or print the article for your personal use. Look for a "Print" or "Download" option in your browser when you are viewing the PDF.
There are several ways that you can access your ILLiad account to request and, in the case of articles, access interlibrary loan materials.
1. In myMillikin, on the right under "Academics" there is a link to ILLiad. (If you use ILLiad frequently, you may want to customize your "Fast Access" menu to include the ILLiad icon.)
2. On the Library's homepage there is an ILLiad button. There is also an ILLiad Account link under the Services menu on the right side of the page.
There are also situations where you will be asked to log in to your ILLiad account:
1. When you use the Find It! button in the library databases you will be taken into Millikin Library Discovery. If the article is not available in another database, you will see a Request through Interlibrary Loan link. Clicking on that link will take you into ILLiad and the citation information will automatically be added to the request.
You will need to be logged into Millikin Library Discovery to see the Request through Interlibrary Loan link.
2. When you are placing an interlibrary loan request for an item in WorldCat.
