What is ILLiad?

ILLiad is the electronic system you use to request an item through Interlibrary Loan. The name ILLiad can be thought of as an acronym for InterLibrary Loan internet accessible database. (top)

Why do I need a username and password to use ILLiad?

Your username and password allows us to give you secure access to information about your interlibrary loan requests. We can also enable you to edit your personal information such as your address or phone number.

Your username can be anything you like, such as your name, abbreviations, or an alphanumeric code. Your password also can be anything you like. No one but you will know your password, not even the library staff. The password you set is stored in an encrypted file.

Your ILLiad account is separate from your Millennium library account and separate from your CNU email account. (top)

What if I forget my password?

In the event that you forget your password, please go to the Reset Password page and follow the instructions. You may also email the Interlibrary Loan Office at ill@cnu.edu or call us at (757) 594-8818. We can then reset your password allowing you access to ILLiad. Please change your password once you logon to ILLiad. (top)

Is security a problem if I use a public workstation?

If you are concerned about the security of your interlibrary loan requests, you can take the following steps:

  • Access ILLiad only from your personal computer or an otherwise secure workstation.
  • When using a public access workstation:
    1. Delete from the history file those pages that contain your personal information.
    2. Exit from the Web browser before you leave the workstation. This prevents the Back button from accessing the pages you were using. (top)

What is electronic delivery?

Many libraries ship photocopies of articles to us in electronic format. In the past we printed these articles before delivering them to you. Now, through ILLiad, we are able to offer you the option of electronic delivery of these articles in PDF format (Adobe's Portable Document Format). You can read more about electronic delivery on the Electronic Delivery Information page. (top)

Who do I contact if I have problems with or questions about ILLiad?

System Problems or InterLibrary Loan questions: InterLibrary Loan office at (757) 594-8818 or e-mail to ill@cnu.edu. (top)
