About Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan services enable Cayuga students, employees, alumni and Empire State College students to request research materials from other libraries or from the other Cayuga campus.  In order to place requests for materials, users must create an ILLiad account.

  • Create an ILLiad account using your MyCayuga username and password. Non students may create the account using your library card number. If you need a library card, please click here.
  • Books requested from other libraries may take up to 10 business days to arrive. Articles from periodicals normally arrive as electronic files within a day of placing the request, but may take longer.
  • Materials borrowed through ILL are borrowed and returned at the Library Circulation Desk.
  • Online-only students, as well as faculty teaching online classes only or who are on sabbatical leave, and who also live more than 20 miles away from either campus, may request that ILL materials be sent to a valid street address.  To request this service for an ILL item, please enter your current contact information and a valid street address into the notes section of the ILLiad request form.
