ILLiad Basics

ILLiad Account

  • ILLiad is the Sladen Library's document service system used to order books, articles, etc.
  • Create your personal ILLiad account online to place your order.  This account will help you track requests and keep a history of what you have ordered. 
  • Book requests may also be renewed within the account. 


  • Requests are $3.00 per item and billed to a departmental cost center number, grant number or to a cash account. Please note that this is a small fee charged to recoup some of the cost of interlibrary loan and copyright fees.  Most libraries charge us $11.00 per request.

Billing Accounts

  • Your ILLiad account requires a billing account consisting of a departmental cost center number, a grant or a cash account number.  A prompt to enter the account billing information appears as a final step when creating your ILLiad account.
  • The code for a cash account is 999999. 
  • Please contact your department for the cost center or grant number or check Henry, HFHS intranet, to look it up yourself.
  • Billing is done at the beginning of each month and includes charges for the previous month.  Cost center and grant debits are charged electronically through departments. 
  • Cash invoices are emailed to individuals. Payment is accepted at the front desk or may be mailed to the library.

Turnaround Times

  • Articles from other libraries, 2-5 days
  • Articles from Sladen Library, 1 day
  • Books from other libraries, 3-14 days
