Note that all correspondence, from the ILL office, will be sent to your official UW Colleges email account.

You will be prompted to enter your student ID number and last name. Make sure to select the campus where you would like to pick up the item. You should soon receive an email confiming your request.

ILLiad is a system you can use to request Inter-Library Loan items, including journal articles, that are not available at UW-Baraboo/Sauk County or in the UW System. ILLiad also allows you to track and renew your requests online (click on the ILLiad link to get started). The amount of time it takes to receive materials from other libraries varies. The majority of requests are filled within one to two weeks. ILL materials may be picked up at the library front desk. Journal articles are delivered electronically to UW colleges email, and may be viewed, printed or downloaded. There is no charge for this service. We do our best to fill all ILL requests, but some items may not be available depending on the owning library's policies.
