First Time User Registration for Interlibrary Loan
To request an item through Interlibrary Loan, you must first identify yourself to the library’s Interlibrary Loan system.  To do this, fill out a registration form using your web browser.  Registration has three purposes:
  • Entering your personal information into the Interlibrary Loan system means you will not have to supply the information again when making future requests.
  • Having your email and regular mail addresses on file with Interlibrary Loan enables us to notify you promptly and deliver materials accurately when your request arrives in the library.
  • By specifying your library card number 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 for the previous 60 days.  
  • Patrons will be limited to five active requests (loan or copy) at any one time.  
About your Password
During registration, you will be asked to choose a password.  You will use this password with your library card number to log into the Interlibrary Loan system in the future.  Your password must be at least 9 characters long with at least one non-alphabetic character.  Letters are case sensitive.  We recommend you follow good security practices and choose a password that is different from those used to access other systems.  The Interlibrary Loan software will encrypt your password so it will remain secure.  Because of this, resetting passwords will be by email link only.
