Summer Start 2015: Getting Your Materials


Getting Materials

The first time you use ILLiad you will need to create an account. You must sign in with your LionLink login to create the account.

If you do not know that information, contact the Albright College HelpDesk in person in eth CCM building, by email or by phone (610-921-7676).

Getting What You've Discovered

Getting Articles: Once you find an article you need, click on the Find Fulltext icon fulltext icon to see if Albright has that particular item or check our Journal Locator, a full listing of the journals, magazines and newspapers that the college can access in print (in the Library) or online.

If you can't find the item at Albright,  the ILLiad Request icon Illiad reuest icon  will allow you to request a copy of an item from another library. First you need to create an account. Once you have an account, you can click wherever you see this icon to generate a request for the materials you need. Articles are scanned and available electronically via ILLiad (you will receive emails telling you about the status of all requests) and take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks to obtain.

Getting Books: If you find a book in Albright Library's catalog and go to class on the Reading campus, you should visit the library and check out the book yourself. If you are taking classes at one of the remote sites, after you create an account, you can enter requests for your books directly into ILLIAD.
