Muntz Library Introduces Online Interlibrary Loan System
The UT Tyler Robert R. Muntz Library has implemented ILLiad (Interlibrary Loan Internet Accessible Database). This systems is used by over 900 libraries, and the numbers are growing. Why would you want to use ILLiad? UT Tyler patrons will find it easier to submit their ILL requests. UT Tyler faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students can register once, providing name, address, and other personal information. After that, they can place requests, and their personal information is saved in the system. This means that, once registered, you will not need to enter your personal information for new transactions. It saves you time. Another great feature of the system is that, in some cases, citation information from our databases will automatically be populated on the ILL form. This feature is currently available in WorldCat, all EBSCO databases, and all ProQuest databases. This means that your requests will be handled more rapidly and accurately as problems relating to misinterpretation of hand-written requests are eliminated. In addition, copies of materials that are delivered to our ILL office electronically will be available for electronic retrieval from your ILLiad account. In other words, you can get an article, for instance, in electronic form via your ILLiad account once it arrives. The system also allows users to get information about the status of requests anytime from any location where they can access the Internet without having to call the ILL Department.
