ILLiad

ILLiad is our web-based Interlibrary Loan system for borrowing items from regional libraries in the Pacific Northwest.

Requesting Materials Not Owned by the CWU Library

To obtain materials not held by the Brooks Library, confirm that the material is not available in either print or electronic format by first:

  • Searching OneSearch
  • Searching our Online Journals List if you are looking for an article in an online journal.
  • If neither of those provides access to the material, then
  • login to ILLiad

You may pickup and return ILL materials at the Circulation Department on the First Floor of the Library. Our hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30am to 4:00pm.

Costs for Obtaining Interlibrary Loan Materials

Materials not owned in the CWU collection may potentially be assessed fees according to the lending library. ILL articles may be assessed Copyright Fees and all ILL materials can potentially be assessed Lender Fees. ILL takes every effort to obtain materials at no cost and over 90% of all materials are obtained without fees. When this is not possible, costs will be passed-through to users, with their prior approval.

Additional Service For Students At University Centers

University Center patrons may also request materials from our CWU Brooks Library collection using our document delivery service, in addition to using our regular interlibrary loan (ILL) service, which provides materials from other libraries.
