If you have never used Interlibrary Loan, or ILL, at FGCU, you will need to set up your account in the ILLiad system before you can start placing requests. Don’t worry! It’s easy and free to FGCU students, staff, and faculty.
Start at the Library homepage. Look down to the section of links called Borrow & Request. Find Interlibrary Loan and click to get started.
Interlibrary loan requests at FGCU are managed in this online system, called ILLiad. This is where you can place requests, check the status of requests, and retrieve articles that are sent electronically.
Your login for ILL will be your Library ID, which can be found on your Eagle ID card. The Library ID is the 14 digit number on the card that starts with 3 digits, then your UIN, and then 2 additional digits. Enter all 14 digits with no spaces into the form.
If you are a first time user, leave the password field blank. If you have used ILL before, you may or may not have created a password. If you aren’t sure, go ahead and leave the password field blank. If you have previously created an account without a password, you will be logged in. If you have previously created an account and DID create a password, you will be told that you entered an incorrect password. Then is it up to you to remember what it was or use the “forgot password” link provided.
If you are a first time user, when you enter your ID number and click log-on, you’ll get a form to fill out with your contact information.
Fill out all fields with the red asterisks. Having this information on file enables us to notify you about materials. When you are finished, click submit. You are now ready to start placing requests.
If you would like to add a password to your account, click on the “Change Password” link in the left side navigation menu and leave “current password” blank.
