Interlibrary Loan

New InterLibrary Borrowing software

Interlibrary Services has implemented a new system (ILLIAD) to manage Interlibray Borrowing requests.
To submit a request using ILLIAD, simply:
1. Go to the Document Delivery Request Forms page and select “Interlibrary Borrowing Request Forms.”
2. Complete a one time, required registration process.
3. Following registration, simply log in to the ILLIAD Main Menu.
4. From the ILLIAD Main Menu, select one of the appropriate request form type: book, article, map, dissertation/thesis, government document, score, or map.

Interlibrary Services will continue to notify patrons via e-mail when their loaned material is received. Articles will be delivered electronically.

Faculty and graduate students can still use RLCP to borrow items directly from University of California at Berkeley or University of Texas at Austin.


Question: I am trying to find a Ph.D Dissertation of Stanford U on line, could you please tell me how to do that?

Answer: Free access to Stanford dissertations online is limited to Stanford students and faculty, or to persons who are on the Stanford campus. If you wanted to get a digital version of a Stanford dissertation, you'd need to purchase it via the usual Dissertation Abstracts ordering process via ProQuest. If you had a Stanford affiliation and SUNet logon ID, you'd use the Stanford Dissertations database on our Databases list.

However, as a non-Stanford person, that isn't possible. I see that you are at a university is not a RLG member, which is the cooperative system that shares inter-library loan. We lend dissertations to one another, but not to non-RLG members, unless the dissertation was published prior to 1953. So unless the dissertation you are searching for is pre-1953, you will either have your library try to find it at another institution that will lend, or you will want to purchase a copy through proquest.
