About Using Illiad
Using your Illiad Account
How do I log in to the Illiad system?
From the ILL login page, new users can click the "First Time Users" link below the logon boxes, where you will be directed to read information about choosing a username and password, copyright, and Illiad FAQ, after which you can register by clicking the button labeled "First Time Users Click Here". On the next screen you will create your account by entering your name, CIIS ID number, contact information, username and password. Your account will be created once you click the "Submit Information" button, at which point you'll be able to access a home screen from which you can submit and review requests and review/update your registration information.
Why do I need a username and password to use this system?
Your username and password allows us to give you secure access to information about your interlibrary loan requests. We can also enable you to edit your personal information such as your address or phone number.
Your username can be anything you like, such as your name, abbreviations, or an alphanumeric code. Your password also can be 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. However, no one but you will know your password, not even the Library staff. The password you set is stored in an encrypted file.
What if I forget my password?
In the event that you forget your password, on the ILL log-in page click on "Forgot Password?" and you will be able to reset it. If you have problems, call (415) 575-6186 or send e-mail to ill [at] ciis [dot] edu.
