Technically speaking, "Interlibrary Loan" means getting materials from other libraries, and "ILLiad" is the software we use for requesting library items - but they are interchangeable names for the same account.

Note:  Before you use ILLiad for the first time, you will need to create an account for yourself.  (Unlike other accounts at UNL and the Libraries, it doesn't automatically exist.)

To create your account:

1. Go to

2. Click on "First Time Users" under the username and password fields.

3. Click on "Create an Interlibrary Loan Account."

4. Fill out the form to create your account.
