Interlibrary Loan

An interlibrary loan (ILL) is a loan made by another library to the University Libraries, so that a researcher here may have access to materials URI does not own. Copies, rather than original materials, may sometimes be supplied.

Interlibrary Loan service is available to faculty, students, and staff of the University of Rhode Island. 

How to make a request

This service is available to Undergraduates and Graduate Students and Staff and Faculty at the University of Rhode Island.

To access your URI Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) account, you must log in with approved University credentials:  

  • Username (e-Campus username, without the @uri.edu)
  • SSO password

First time users will be prompted to create an account upon their first visit to ILLiad.  After submitting the information, you will not be prompted after subsequent log-ins.  We only advise that if any changes take place - such as contact information or if you prefer to switch your pick-up location from Providence to Kingston - that those changes be entered in your ILLiad Account.

How to request an article via ILLiad.
