If our library doesn't own the book, we'll try to find it!

Library cardholders may request materials that are not owned by the Library but are at libraries throughout Florida and the United States. Requests may include:

  • Books
  • Photocopies of articles or book chapters
  • Microfilm

Anyone with an ACLD library card in good standing may request ILL services in the following ways:

  • Online with the ILLiad service (Preferred method)
  • By phone
  • In person using the green request cards available at any library service desk

ACLD does not charge for ILL service, but other libraries might charge processing fees or fines on overdue ILLs. ILLs are more valuable than most ACLD materials and overdue ILLs will immediately block your account. Renewals must be requested at least 3 days before the due date, and ILLs should be returned at a check-in desk. Please check the Interlibrary Loan section of our Ask Us! database for more information.

ILLiad service

ILLiad is an online request service that processes ILLs. You only need to register once, and you may check your requests online at any time.

First time users may create your Interlibrary Loan account online. (Have your library card number and PIN ready.)

If you already have an ILLiad account, please log in here.

TIP: Use Worldcat Discovery Services to streamline your Interlibrary loan requests.  The "Request Item" link will direct you to sign in and then automatically copy title and other info into your ILLiad requests.  It's easier and more accurate! Here's how.

* PLEASE NOTE: Worldcat Discovery Services replaced FirstSearch on October 1, 2014.
