Before submitting a request for a book or article through ILLiad, please check to be sure it is not available in the RU Library collection or freely available online. For books, check the RU Catalog and I-Share Catalog. For articles, search for the article title in the Search Almost Everything tool or in Google Scholar.
If the book you need is not available in the RU Catalog or I-Share Catalog, search the WorldCat catalog. When you have found your book, click the ILLiad button:
You will be prompted to log in to your ILLiad account. Once you log in, the citation information should import automatically into the form. If the form does not automatically populate you may need to fill it out yourself.
Multiple Volume Sets: Submit only one request but specify the specific volume(s) needed.
Textbooks and Required Course Materials: Requests for textbooks will be cancelled. See our Textbooks & Required Course Materials Policy.
To manually submit a request, login to ILLiad and click the book request form.
When searching the library's databases for articles, you will see a 360 Link to Full Text icon when an article is not available in that specific database. Clicking that icon will show whether the article is available in another database, in print, or on microform.
If the article is not held by Roosevelt University, you will see a link that says Request this item through interlibrary loan. Click the link, login to your ILLiad account, and the request form will automatically import the citation information for your article.
