Library Resources

Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad)

If our library doesn’t have what you need, it is likely that the item can be borrowed from another library.  Articles are usually turned around within 24-48 hours, books usually take about 2 weeks.  For further information on this service, see our Interlibrary Loan FAQs

You can access Interlibrary Loan from the Library Tab in myRedDragon under "Library Links and Resources," as shown below, or request items directly from ONESearch.  Items in ONESearch not owned by us have a link to request via ILL. You may need the WorldCat scope to find them.

All users must be registered in ILLiad and verify their credentials annually.

If you haven't registered previously you will need to fill out a form, and then it will take you to the request page.

Resource Sharing

Resource Sharing includes other SUNY libraries and regional libraries (ex. CUNY, Marist, Siena or Ithaca College) and is faster than Interlibrary Loan.  If we can't get an item through Resource Sharing, it automatically goes to Interlibrary Loan, which includes more libraries.  ILLiad login needs to be verified annually to make requests.
