Search and request from libraries worldwide

  2. Click Find it @ UIC
  3. Pick your library (Note: You’ll need to use the same library every time).
  4. Login to ILLiad (click First time users if you do not have an account).
  5. Review the request and click Submit.

You’ll get an email when the item is ready to pick up (usually 7-10 days).
