About Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

If the Sojourner Truth Library does not have the book or article you need for your research, you can make an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request for free. Our ILL system is called ILLiad (InterLibrary Loan Internet Accessible Database). ILLiad allows you to request items electronically and to track the progress of your request. If the request is attainable, ILL will order the item from another library. Articles arrive electronically (1-2 days) & books may take 1-2 weeks to arrive.

ILL Instructions

  1. On the Sojourner Truth Library’s web site, under the "Services" tab click on "Interlibrary Loan." 
  2. Sign into ILLiad using your campus network log-in credentials. If you are a first-time ILLiad user, you will be required to complete a registration form, and include a valid email address.
  3. Once signed into ILLiad, you will see a menu on the left hand side. Choose the appropriate category under the "New Request" section.
  4. Fill out all the required sections of the form to the best of your ability. 
  5. Hit the "Submit Request" button at the bottom of the form once all the required information is inputted.
