...request books and articles directly through ILLiad?

  1. If you know that the item you want is not available in the UW system, you will need to submit a request through ILLiad.
  2. Click on the ILLiad link under Quick Links on the library home page.
  3. Type in your student ID number and last name.
  4. On the next page under New Request, select the type of item you want (Article, Book...). This will take you to an interface where you will enter the citation information.
  5. At the bottom of the page, click on Submit Request.

Many articles are sent electronically and are generally e-mailed in a few days. If your article was faxed or mailed, however, or you requested a book or other item, these may be picked up at the circulation desk. It generally takes two to seven days to receive an item.
