Resource Sharing (Interlibrary Loan)

Resource Sharing/Interlibrary loan is a service for UR faculty, staff, and students. It is based on the premise of sharing resources for the good of all. It allows University Libraries to obtain materials such as books and journal articles for the purpose of teaching, learning, and research.

Ordering Items

  • Use your ILLiad account to obtain items not available from UR Libraries. This service is available for current UR faculty, students and staff.
  • Check the OneSearch to see if the library already owns the item.
  • Find it even faster by searching the Open Access Resources listed below.

To Submit a Request to ILLiad:

  • Login to ILLiad using your UR netid and password or create an account. Then choose Book Request, Article request or Other Request from the left-hand menu and submit your request.
  • You can check in on an item's status by visiting this same account page.
