First Time User Registration for Interlibrary Loan

What is Interlibrary Loan (ILL)?
Interlibrary Loan is a borrowing privilege available to current Lincoln City Library card holders. This reciprocal service allows customers to borrow, from other libraries across the nation, materials or copies of articles unavailable in the Lincoln City Library system. As a courtesy to all libraries, it is suggested that customers submit a Suggest-A-Title form for a new release rather than submitting an Interlibrary Loan request.

Who may use ILL?
Any individual who has established proof of residence and holds a resident, county, or non-resident library card may use this service. A customer's account must not have charges of $10.00 or more in order to receive an Interlibrary Loan item.

How do I submit an ILL request?
Click the button below to create an online ILLiad account using your 14-digit library card number and your 4-digit PIN number. Staff are available to assist with creating accounts. Once you have created your account, you can use it to place Interlibrary Loan requests; requests can be made either by filling out one of the online ILLiad forms in your account, or by looking up the item you want on WorldCat and clicking the "Interlibrary Loan request" link in its record. You can also review ILL items currently checked out, follow the status of your requests, request renewals online, and review a history of items that have been ordered. Allow 3-6 weeks for materials to arrive.

By pressing this button you acknowledge and agree to all of the terms and conditions above. After reading this information, you can press the "First Time Users Click Here" button to continue.
