ILLiad stands for InterLibrary Loan Internet Accessible Database. ILLiad is the system used by InterLibrary Loan (ILL) to obtain materials from other libraries and/or ship items from the Jerry Falwell Library to you.

The ILLiad login is available on this page: https://www.liberty.edu/library/interlibrary-loan/

The first time you use ILLiad, you must select “Create Account.”

Items that can be requested using ILLiad:

  1. Articles not available online through the JFL website: Articles will be scanned and sent you via PDF.
  2. Items not available in the JFL (for residential students): These items will be obtained from another library. They must be picked up at the main desk of the library and cannot be shipped.
  3. Books available in the JFL (for online students): These books will be shipped to you. As long as the book is currently available, shipping will take 7-10 days. Overnight shipping is available upon request. Any shipping fees will be charged to your student account. Books that are checked out will be shipped once they are returned to the library. See more shipping information here.

Items that cannot be requested through ILLiad include:

  1. Textbooks
  2. Items inconsistent with the Liberty Way (e.g., Rated-R-Movies, explicit content, etc.), unless you provide course-related justification from a professor.
