Interlibrary Loan Service

Interlibrary Loan is used to order books and articles not available at the Health Sciences Library.

How do I order Interlibrary Loan material?

Items can be ordered through Illiad, the electronic Interlibrary Loan ordering system.  Please use the following link to access the Illiad system for the Cleveland Health Sciences Library.

If you are new to Illiad, click on the first-time users' link under the login box to register for an Illiad account.



Before requesting material, please check the e-journal portal and the library catalog to see what you can access online or in print without putting a request into Illiad.


What are the requirements for an Illiad account?

You must be a current faculty, staff, or student in the Nursing, Dental or Medical School and other Health Sciences related departments to get an Illiad account with the Health Sciences Library. Residents at University and MetroHealth Hospitals also have access to our Interlibrary Loan services. Once all of the necessary information is filled in, you can start submitting your requests. Please make sure you choose the correct status and department when you register. Make sure you are logging into the correct Illiad site.
