NEWS: Simplified Requesting in UConn WorldCat!
We are happy to announce a simplification in how you can place interlibrary loan requests in UConn WorldCat! In the past, you may recall that there were two separate “Request Item” buttons in UConn WorldCat with each button taking you to a separate interlibrary loan order form. We’ve recently updated our UConn WorldCat display to include only one button. Just search for materials in UConn WorldCat, choose the “Request from ILL” button, and place your request. Note that this change is simply a “behind the scenes” enhancement, and will not impact the delivery dates and due dates of requested materials.

NEWS: ILLiad Phishing Scam
If you receive an email telling you that your ILLiad access is expiring soon and asking you to reactivate your account, please disregard it. This is a phishing scam. If you have any questions about this, or if you receive notifications for library materials you did not request, please contact the Document Delivery-Interlibrary Loan Office.

The UConn Libraries’ Document Delivery & Interlibrary Loan (DD-ILL) service helps you obtain materials to support your academic research, learning, and professional growth and is available to UConn faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students. These materials are for your personal use only; they are not transferable and may not be used for course reserve or course distribution.



  • Create your My ILLiad account before placing requests for any materials
  • Library policy restricts the borrowing of course-adopted texts, workbooks, and standardized tests
  • Choosing “Expand My Results to include items not owned by UConn” on the Libraries’ homepage will not display print books not owned by UConn.  To do this, choose “WorldCat” from the search drop-down box.
  • To display articles held in print at the UConn libraries, choose “Expand My Results to include items not owned by UConn” on the Libraries’ homepage.
