Connect to ILLiad

ILLiad (Interlibrary Loan) allows you to request articles that are not available in the Library either as online full-text or in paper. You can also use ILLiad to request a book if it is not owned by us or any LINK+ libraries.

For questions about your ILLiad account, please contact Interlibrary Loan staff — (909) 607-4591.

Connect to LINK+

LINK+ allows you to request a book from another library when we don't own a book or when our copy is checked out. Some Link+ libraries will also lend videos and CDs. You cannot use LINK+ to request articles.

What types of materials do you want to request?

  • Articles in journals/magazines/newspapers
    • Use ILLiad to request electronic delivery of journal/magazine/newspaper articles.
  • Books
    • First check Blais to see if the Library owns the book you need.
    • If our copy is checked out, or we do not own it, check LINK+.
    • If there are no copies in Blais or Link+, use ILLiad.
  • Dissertations
    • Check Blais by dissertation title or author to see if the Library owns a copy.
    • Check Dissertations & Theses to see if you can download a PDF of the dissertation you want.
    • Use ILL if the dissertation you want is not available in the Library or electronically.
