Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and Document Delivery: ILLiad Help

What is ILLiad?

ILLiad is the name of the software that the TTUHSC El Paso Libraries use to manage its interlibrary loan and document delivery services. It allows each customer on the system to have their own "ILLiad" interlibrary loan account. Having your own account means you can track your requests -- both those in progress and those that have been completed. You may also request renewals online by using your ILLiad account.
