First Time User Registration for Interlibrary Loan

To request an item through Interlibrary Loan, you must first fill out an ILLiad registration form using your web browser. Registration has three purposes:

  • Select a username and password. This is the information you will use when logging on to ILLiad in the future.
  • Entering your personal information into ILLiad means you will not have to supply this information again.
  • By specifying a username and password of your choosing, you will have secure access to information about your requests. You will also be able to review a list of items you have requested in the past.
  • You will need to supply a valid NDSU assigned email address to assure delivery of requested items.

Interlibrary Loan service is offered to NDSU faculty, staff and students. If you require assistance with ILL, please call us at (701) 231-8885.
