ILLiad

What is ILLiad?

ILLiad is an interlibrary loan tool that allows you to request articles not owned by Benedictine University Library and request books not available through I-Share.

Details:

  • Articles are delivered electronically to your ILLiad account usually within 48-72 hours of request. Articles are accessible 5 times or for 15 days, whichever comes first.
  • To help ensure your safety and the safety of Library staff, print books will be quarantined in accordance with recommended guidelines. We anticipate such requests will take a minimum of 14 days to fulfill. 

How do I log in to my ILLiad account?

  1. Click Interlibrary Loan in the Library menu bar.
  2. Click the ILLiad button.
  3. Enter your BenU login. If you're a new user, you'll be prompted to set up your account.
