ILLiad Improvements

in New Services
December 11th, 2012

Changes are coming to ILLiad! Effective at 1 pm on Tuesday, December 11, 2012, you will be able to sign in to your ILLiad interlibrary loan account using your Kerberos username and password. You will then be asked to provide contact information to create your new ILLiad account.

Your new ILLiad account will have significant changes:

  • You will need to sign in to ILLiad with your BU username and Kerberos password, instead of your old ILLiad username and password.
  • ILLiad emails will be sent to your BU email address only. If you wish to forward emails from your BU address to another account, please contact BU IS&T for more information on how to forward emails.
  • If you have bookmarked our old ILLiad sign-in page on your browser, you will need to bookmark the new sign-in page instead.

Your old ILLiad requests still exist and will continue to be processed. It may take 1-2 business days for the old account to be merged to your new account and those requests to become visible online. Even if you cannot see your old requests on your new ILLiad account, you may continue to pick-up or return any ILL requests placed before the switch (emails will still be sent when those ILL requests arrive).

These improvements will help us to provide you with better Interlibrary Loan services. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Access Services Librarian, Stacey Ramos, at sthill@bu.edu or 617-358-0698.

Sincerely,
The Theology Library
