First Time User Registration for Interlibrary Loan

By creating your account and placing requests through the ILLiad system, you acknowledge and agree to all of the terms and conditions below. After reading this information, you can press the "First Time Users Click Here" button below.

To request an item through Interlibrary Loan or Document Delivery, you must first identify yourself to the library's ILLiad system. To do this you fill out a registration form using your Web browser. Registration has three purposes:

  • Entering your personal information into the ILLiad system means you will not have to supply the information again when making future requests; your information will be pre-filled on the request forms.
  • Having your e-mail and regular mail addresses on file with Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery enables us to notify and deliver materials to you faster.
  • By specifying a Username 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 in the past.

About your Username and Password

During registration, you will be asked to choose a Username and Password. You will use this Username and Password when logging on to the ILLiad system in the future. We recommend that you use your Fitchburg State Falcon Key username and password for ILLiad. (This is the username and password that gets you access to your Fitchburg State email, Blackboard, library databases, etc.) ILLiad will encrypt your password, so it will remain secure. Only you will know your password and you can easily update it in ILLiad any time you change your Flacon Key password.

Important Copyright Information

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research". If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use", that user may be liable for copyright infringement. The Gallucci-Cirio Library reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
