Answers to the most commonly asked questions about ILL.

How Do I Check the Statuses of My Requests?

Log onto your ILLiad account and click on:

  • "Outstanding Requests" to track requests that have not yet been filled.
    • If a request has been processed by the ILL staff, it will remain in "Waiting for a Lender" status until a scan has been delivered to your account, or a loan has been received by the ILL Office.
  • "Checked Out Items" to view your checked out ILLs.
  • "Renewal Request" through each Checked Out Item record to request a loan extension.
  • "History Requests" to view a list of your completed ILLs.

The status description provided through the ILLiad system are general, so for questions feel free to contact the ILL Office (, 202-662-9154, or visit the Information Desk in the atrium and ask for the ILL Borrowing Staff, M-F 9-4pm).
