Interlibrary Loan Services - ILLiad

Interlibrary Loan Services (ILL) allows ISMMS students, PSON students, residents, faculty, and staff and Mount Sinai employees to borrow materials from other libraries when an item is not available at Mount Sinai Health System Libraries.  

In order to make an ILL request all users must first register for an ILLiad account. ILLiad also enables users to track the status of their requests, and can provide available articles in PDF format through its Electronic Delivery option.

Delivery Times

  • Electronically delivered articles are usually available within 2-3 business days.
  • Request for physical materials can take from 7-14 days to receive depending on the location of the item.

Request Policies and Limits

  • All interlibrary loan items must either be returned or renewed (if allowed) by the due date. Failure to return any item in a timely manner could result in lost material fees applied by the lending library. Failure to return an item will result in a loss of interlibrary loan and/or library services privileges.
