Document Delivery for Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students

The J.D. Williams Library offers faculty, staff and graduate students free desktop document delivery of articles from our local collections.

When you need an article from a journal or book which is owned by the library only in print or microform, we will scan the article and deliver it to you electronically through your ILLiad account. To request articles, log in to your ILLiad account and click the "Request Document Delivery" button on your ILLiad Main Menu. 

If you have not yet set up an ILLiad account for ILL, please go to the logon form below and fill in the requested information. More information is available on our Borrowing for Users page.

If your have any questions, please contact Judy Greenwood in the main library or Debi McCain in the Science Library.
