Registering for ILLiad

To request an item through Interlibrary Services, you must first register in our ILLiad system. Registration has three purposes:

  • By entering your personal information into the ILLiad system, 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 Services enables us to notify you promptly and deliver materials accurately when your request arrives.
  • By setting a Username and Password, you will have secure access to information about your requests, including past requests.

About your Username and Password

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

Username: Please use your OSU lastname.# .
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.
ILLiad will encrypt your password, so it will remain secure. While only you will know your password, you can have it reset if you forget it.
