Interlibrary Loan

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

ILLiad service

ILLiad is an online request service that processes InterLibrary Loans (ILLs)--requests for items from library systems in other counties and/or states. You only need to register once, and you may check your requests online at any time.

What is ILL and how to use it

If our library doesn't own what you're looking for you can request it from other libraries throughout Florida and the United States. Requests may include:

  • Books
  • Microfilm
  • Photocopies of articles or book chapters

Have an ACLD library card in good standing*? Request ILL services by:

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 business days before the due date, and ILLs should be returned at a check-in desk.

Please check the Interlibrary Loan section of Ask Us! for more information.
*A library card in good standing does not have $50 or more in fees or more than 4 overdue items, and patron information is up-to-date.

Please note: Worldcat Discovery Services replaced FirstSearch on October 1, 2014.
