To request an item through Interlibrary Loan, you must first identify yourself to City Tech library's ILLiad system by creating an account online.

Registration has three purposes:

  • Entering your personal information into the ILLiad system means you will not have to supply the information again when making future requests.
  • 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.
  • Through your ILLiad account, you will have secure access to information about your requests. You will also be able to review the list of items you have requested in the past.

Username and Password

During registration, you will be asked to choose a Username and Password to log into the ILLiad system in the future.

Username and Password: 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.
