Electronic Delivery via ILLiad

Your ILL 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.

Just log into your ILLiad account.

From your Main Menu, under View Requests, click on the Electronic Delivery option.

At Electronically Received Articles, click on the PDF/View link and the article will download.

It is as simple as that and the best advantages are:

1. You just need to remember your ILLiad username/password.

2. Your articles will be accessible for 30 days from the date of posting.

If you have any questions or problems downloading your articles, please call the Marx Library ILL Office at 460-7034 or email at libref@southalabama.edu.

We hope you will enjoy this delivery aspect of ILLiad.
