ILLiad: Home

What is ILLiad?

ILLiad is the electronic system used for requesting and delivering items for its interlibrary loan service.  ILLiad is open to NYMC students, residents, faculty, and staff.  Non-NYMC affiliates, NYMC alumni, and the general public can use Loansome Doc.

Contact Access Services at (914) 594 4200 or with any ILLiad and document delivery related questions. 

NOTE: There is no charge for this service.

Registering for an Account

To register for an account: 

  1. Go to the library homepage.
    • REMEMBER: If you are off-campus when you register for an account, you will want to log into the library's proxy server before starting the registration process.
  2. Click on the "Interlibrary Loans" link under the Quick Links* sidebar on the left side of the page.
  3. Click on the New Users link at the bottom of the page.
  4. Read the terms and conditions and then click on the First Time Users Click Here button.
  5. Make sure all fields of the New User Registration for ILLiad form are filed out accurately.
    • NOTE: Required fields are denoted by a red asterisk (*).
  6. Click the Submit Information button.
    • NOTE: If the system tries to ask for financial information, skip that section.  ILL is a free service for students, residents, and faculty of NYMC.
  7. You should then be presented with the ILLiad homepage.

Requesting Materials

You can request materials in one of two ways:

  • Automatically via the NYMC Article Linker Button
    1. ​​When you find an article that you like on PubMed (or any of the NYMC databases), click on the NYMC Article Linker button.
      • If we don't own the article, the system will prompt you to order it via interlibrary loan. 
    2. Click on the blue Order Article button.
    3. ILLiad will prompt you to log into your account if you are not already logged in.
    4. The system will use the database's information to fill out your request form.
    5. Click the Submit Information button.
    6. You should now see your request when you click on the Outstanding Requests link in the View section of the left sidebar.
  • Manually via the Appropriate ILLiad Form
    1. Log into your ILLiad account.
    2. Choose the appropriate form for the type of resource you want to request (i.e. book, article, other) under the New Request section of the left sidebar.
    3. Fill out the form with the information in the required fields.  Required fields will be denoted by a red asterisk (*).
      • NOTE: If you have more information than just the required fields, put that information in as well.  The more information we have about your request, the quicker we can fulfill it.
    4. Click the Submit Request button.
    5. You should now see your request when you click on the Outstanding Requests link in the View section of the left sidebar.
