All UAS affiliated persons, students, faculty and staff, are eligible to use the library’s Interlibrary Loan (Illiad) Service and will use their UA Username and Password to access and manage their Illiad Acount. Prior to registering for an Illiad Account, make sure you are registered for a library card. Patrons will not be able to receive interlibrary loan items if they have existing fines of $10 or more.
Place all your materials requests through your Illiad Account unless you live close to one of the JLC member libraries. (See Libraries listing on main page of Library Catalog.). If what you want is in the JLC Catalog and is convenient to pick up, just place a hold on the item(s). If the item is not in the catalog and we need to get it elsewhere, we will request it for you and mail it to your home address. If we own the item, it is mailed to you more quickly. You will return items directly to the lending library except for the book chapters and articles sent to you electronically. Remember you’ll need a UA Username and Password to place ILL (Illiad ) requests.
You can choose to use the Egan Library’s or the Sitka Public Library’s Interlibrary Loan Services. You can return loan items requested through your UAS Illiad account to the UAS-Sitka Student Success Center (room 226) and they will mail them back to us.
Currently, patrons are not charged for interlibrary loan requests unless items are overdue or lost. Please respect that there are staff and mailing costs involved in providing ILL services.
Article requests can take from 2-5 days and the library usually sends the material electronically.
Loans such as books and Audio-Visual material can take 1-3 weeks, depending on how the lending library sends the material.
We ask libraries to send material in the most expedient way, but some libraries will only send by surface mail. You should not wait until the last minute to place requests. ILL staff will try to accommodate "rush requests". If you do place a rush request, it is helpful if you also notify ILL staff about it by phone (796-6470)
Yes. Charges are $.50 per day to a maximum of $10.00 per item. A lost charge is $70.00. Currently we are not charging overdue fines on items borrowed from other libraries for our e-learning patrons who are living outside of Juneau, as these items are returned directly to the lending library. As we value our resource sharing relationships, we try to return items in a timely manner.
Illiad and library patron accounts are separate. You should update personal information such as an email address change in both. Holds on JLC library items will only show up in your library patron account. Your ILL overdue and lost charges will show up in your Egan Library Account and you can pay those at the Circulation Desk.
If you have more than one Illiad Account because you are taking classes at different campuses, know that Illiad Accounts are separate from each other. Each Illiad account only reflects and manages the requests you’ve initiated in that account.
