ILLiad Service Now Available in GIL-Find

University Libraries’ patrons who are active ILLiad (interlibrary loan) users may remember our previous service that allowed seamless requests for articles not available in full-text. The University Libraries have recently activated the ILLiad service in our new GIL-Find library catalog interface.  ILLiad is our interlibrary loan system that allows patrons to request materials from other libraries when the item is not available in our collection.  The service is activated when a user is searching for an article in a database that utilizes the FindIt@Augusta button.  Here are the basic steps:

  1. Search for an article in a database that utilizes the FindIt@Augusta button (e.g. EBSCO, Proquest, PubMed, or Web of Science). [An example article to test in EBSCO is: “Details on the Establishment of Doctor Willis, for the Cure of Lunatics’ (1796)”]
  2. Click the article and then click the FindIt button.

  3. You should be directed to the GIL-Find menu page and see that there is no fulltext available.

  4. Login to GIL-Find using your JagNet ID and password.

  5. You should see a link for the ILLiad instance for the campus you’re on.  (See graphic below)

  6. Click it and login to your ILLiad account

  7.  The article citation should be automatically pre-populated for you.
