ILLiad eliminates the need to enter personal information for each new request. Medical Center Library users are now able to create an account in ILLiad through an easy one-time registration.
Users are asked to enter their personal information, contact information, and delivery preferences only once, at the time they submit their first request. Subsequent requests are entered using the user name and password created during the initial registration process.
In addition to placing requests, registered users are able to view a history of their filled and unfilled requests, resubmit cancelled requests, and change personal information and preferences. ILLiad makes it possible for Medical Center faculty, staff and students to track the progress of submitted requests from any Web browser at any time, without having to contact the Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery Services Department.
ILLiad enables ILL/Document Delivery personnel to provide improved service and response time to inquiries from Medical Center Library users since all information associated with each request, from the time of its submission through completion and delivery, is stored in a searchable database for easy tracking.
One of the most convenient functions of ILLiad is the integrated electronic delivery component. This tool allows us to provide electronic transmission of articles to our users within a single seamless Web interface.
UK faculty, staff and students use their UK Wildcard as their library card. Persons not affiliated with UK may obtain a library card if they are 18 years of age and present a valid Kentucky driver's license or a valid non-driver ID. Faculty, staff, and students from reciprocal colleges and universities in Kentucky may obtain a UK library card with proper identification. Anyone with a UK library card may check out materials in the Medical Center Library or any UK campus library.
The Medical Center Library sends library notices via e-mail.
If a book, journal, or audiovisual you need is checked out, you may place a hold on it so that when it is returned to the Medical Center Library it will be held at the User Services desk for you. You will be notified when it is available.
Contact Genia Kempster if you have questions about placing a hold on library materials or for any questions related to borrowing library materials.
