Place an Interlibrary Loan Request

Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) service allows current Clark students, faculty, and staff to request items from other libraries free of charge. ILLiad is the library system used to process interlibrary loan requests. We will make every reasonable effort to obtain any library materials requested via ILL. Some kinds of item can be very difficult to obtain through ILL, including textbooks, audio-visual materials (DVDs & CDs), microfilm/microfiche, bestsellers or recently released items, non-English language material, archival materials, older & rare books, entire bound journal volumes, maps, dissertations & theses, and obsolete formats (film strips, VHS, LPs, etc.).

Article requests are usually filled within three business days and book requests are normally filled within seven business days. Non-standard requests (conference proceedings, technical reports, etc.) may take longer. There are no limits on the number of ILL requests you can make. However, at peak requesting times, requests may take an additional day or so to process.

 When clicking on the link to log into ILLiad, you will first be prompted to login into to the Clark Proxy server using your Clark username and password -- this is normal. The first time you log into ILLiad, you will setup your ILLiad account with user information: name, email address, mailing address, department/major and status. After creating your account, you will immediately be able to place ILL requests.  

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the ILL Department ( or x7163).
