Finding Full Text: When UAB Libraries Doesn't Have the Full Text


ILLiad is the library system used to get articles or books for you that we don’t have in our collection.  You can also request journals that we have in print through Illiad.

Once we process your request, if the material can be transmitted electronically (an article, for example), it will be posted under your account and you’ll get an e-mail to let you know it’s ready.  Most articles are received and delivered to you in 24 hours.

Illiad requests are FREE for UAB.

Using ILLiad

If the online full text is not available, you can request a copy of the article from another library through interlibrary loan (ILLiad).

From the UAB Libraries catalog page, click on Request article from Lister Hill Library.

After signing in to your ILLiad account, complete the form and click Submit. 

You can also go directly to ILLiad from the UAB Libraries homepage.  Click on Document Delivery/Interlibrary Loan image set in the middle of the homepage under "Lister Hill Library Resources."
