Log in to your Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) Account

Interlibrary loan (ILL)
is a service that allows UIW users to borrow books and obtain copies of articles not available in the UIW Library from other libraries throughout the United States. Our interlibrary loan service is meant to provide UIW users with the necessary materials for their education and research.

The UIW Library has a reciprocal service that lends books and provides copies of articles to users at other U.S. libraries. The loan period is three weeks. The provisions of the U.S. Copyright Law and individual library policies regulate both lending and borrowing of library materials.

TexShare Cards - Students may obtain a TexShare card from the Reference Desk. The TexShare card, along with your UIW ID, allows you to borrow books from other Texas libraries (public and academic). TexShare differs from interlibrary loan in that with TexShare, the borrower is responsible for returning the materials directly to the lending library. TexShare cards must be renewed each semester.
