Helpful hints and information to make the ILL process easy!

Article Retrieval

When you are notified that an article has arrived you will need to login to your ILLiad account to retrieve the article.   

  1. On the main screen there is a box that is titled Articles Currently Available to View.  All articles available to you will be listed in this section.
  2. Click on the transaction number of the article you wish to view.  The article should automatically open a PDF copy.  REMEMBER:  Your article does NOT stay in your account permanently.  The article is only available in your account for a month.

If you have trouble reading/retrieving your article, contact the ILL staff.  Sometimes we will be able to provide a hard copy which may be easier to read.
