Any student currently enrolled in Middlebury College has access to a large and effective resource in the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Department. College faculty and staff also may use ILL resources.
To begin using our Interlibrary Loan Database, called ILLiad (which maintains your personal information, and the information about requests placed in your name), you must first be a registered and enrolled student of Middlebury College. We reserve the right to review your current status, and to cancel requests at any time if/when placed by ineligible patrons.
Now you can give the account information (username and password) to research assistants, teaching assistants, or dept. coordinators so they may place ILL orders on your behalf. The faculty member is responsible for all ILL orders made with their proxy ILLiad accounts. In order for those individuals to check out ILL items or other library materials on your behalf, you must authorize a Proxy Borrowing Card for them. Each faculty member only needs to create one proxy ILLiad account.
Students off-campus may place requests through ILL for photocopied (Articles) materials; off-campus patrons may also use ILLiad to request scans of materials owned by Middlebury. Select the Delivery Site of "Off-Campus - MiddRemote."
Students not currently on campus may use ILL for Article requests only. We also provide articles from the Middlebury Library Collections to students studying around the world. Requested articles are scanned and delivered to the ILLiad website, where a patron from anywhere in the world can access it by downloading or printing it (from Adobe Acrobat).
For ease of access to article databases off-campus, the Library has implemented EZ Proxy. Using this feature will allow you to access resources without changing your browser settings.
For complete details concerning off campus access please refer our Off Campus Access page.
As a Middlebury Library patron you may borrow from other libraries in person in the following circumstances:
