Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

A guide to interlibrary loan at Middlbeury Libraries

Why Might you Need to Clone an ILL Request?

  • If you've returned your ILL book, but decide that you need it again in the future, you can "clone" the original request. 
  • If your book's due date is coming up and you're all out of renewals, you can "clone" the original request so the new book arrives when you need to return the first copy.
  • If you ordered an article, but forgot to download it to your computer and the link has disappeared, you can reorder the same article by "cloning" your previous request.

How to Clone:

  1. Login to ILLiad
  2. Type in your Network Username and Password. Click on "Log on to ILLiad."
  3. From the Main Menu, under "View Requests", select "All Requests"
  4. From the list of requests, click on the transaction number of the item you'd like to reorder.
