First Time User Registration for Interlibrary Loan

To request an item through Interlibrary Loan, you must first identify yourself to the library's ILLiad system. To do this you fill out a registration form using your Web browser.
Registration has three purposes:

  • Entering your personal information into the ILLiad system means you will not have to supply the information again when making future requests.
  • Having your e-mail and telephone on file with Interlibrary Loan enables us to notify you promptly and deliver materials accurately when your request arrives in the library. (Though it is preferred that you register with your Law Center email account, if you choose not to do so, please be sure to set your GULC account to foward all messages to your current email address. Also be sure to set your non-GULC email account to accept messages sent from law-ill@law.georgetown.edu and lawlib@law.georgetown.edu so that our messages will not be mis-identified as spam or junk mail.)
  • By specifying a Username and Password of your choosing, you will have secure access to information about your requests. You will also be able to review the list of items you have requested in the past.

About your Username and Password

During registration, you will be asked to choose a Username and Password. You will use this Username and Password when logging on to the ILLiad system in the future.

Username
Choose anything you like, such as your name, abbreviations, or an alphanumeric code. Username will be case sensitive.
Password
Choose 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. Password will be case sensitive. ILLiad will encrypt your password, so it will remain secure. Only you will know your password.
