New Electronic Delivery Method via ILLiad
The Baugh Biomedical Library, Interlibrary Loans/Document Delivery Department is in the process of integrating our delivery methods for ILL articles. In the future, your articles will be posted as PDF files on your ILLiad account. Once your request has been received and processed by the ILL staff, ILLiad will automatically send you an email with the URL and instructions to retrieve your articles.
Log into your ILLiad account
Go to your Main Menu, under View, click on the Electronic Delivery option.
At Electronically Received Articles, click on the PDF/View link and the article will download.
It’s as simple as that and the best advantages are:
1. You will not have to log into a separate site to retrieve your articles. No more PIN
numbers – just remember your ILLiad username/password.
2. Your articles will be accessible for 30 days from the date of posting.
***Please Note*** We are in the process of phasing out the Ariel delivery method, so you may still receive emails directing you to the old electronic delivery site for previous article requests.
If you have any questions or problems downloading your articles, please call the Baugh Biomedical Library, Interlibrary Loans/Document Delivery Department at 251-460-6891 or
email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you will enjoy this new delivery aspect of ILLiad.
