Interlibrary Loan (ILL) through ILLiad offers current Gonzaga students, faculty, and staff access to materials not held in the Foley library print or online collection. ILL requests are processed on a first come first served basis. When you place an ILL we process and send your request to other libraries that own the item. If they are willing, they send us the item to be checked out in the case of a book, or delivered electronically in the case of an article. For book requests, the process takes an average of 5-10 day. Articles may take that long, but are often received within a day or two. You will be notified by email when the items arrive. The nature of ILL , is that we cannot guarantee the receipt of any item.

To request an item through Interlibrary Loan, you must first identify yourself to the library's ILLiad system. To do this you fill out a registration form using your Web browser.
Registration has three purposes:

  1. Entering your personal information into the ILLiad system means you will not have to supply the information again when making future requests.
  2. Having your e-mail and regular mail addresses on file with Interlibrary Loan enables us to notify you promptly and deliver materials accurately when your request arrives in the library, it is important to keep this information up to date.
  3. By specifying a Username and Password of your choosing, you will have secure access to information about your requests.

About your Username and Password

During registration, you will be asked to choose a Username and Password. You will use this Username and Password when logging on to the ILLiad system in the future.

Choose anything you like, such as your name, abbreviations, or an alphanumeric code.
Choose anything you like. We recommend that you follow good security practice and choose a password that is different from those you use to access other systems.
ILLiad will encrypt your password, so it will remain secure. Only you will know your password.
