Non-KUMC Patrons: How to Register for an ILLiad Account


Interlibrary Loan is the service where a library patron can borrow materials and receive photocopies of documents. The University of Kansas Medical Center uses the system called ILLiad to request items through Interlibrary Loan. The name ILLiad can be thought of as an acronym for InterLibrary Loan internet accessible database.

Before you can place requests for materials through ILLiad, you need to set up an ILLiad account. Here are instructions on how to do so.

First, you need to request a username and password by fillilng out the ILLiad Username and Password Form for Non-KUMC Patrons. Here is what the form will look like:



Please provide your first and last name, email address, area code, and phone number in the appropriate fields. Click Submit my request.

You will receive an email with your ILLiad username and password. Once you receive this email, you will need to log in to ILLiad.



Log in to ILLiad using the username and password that you were assigned.

You will be asked to fill out a registration page like the one below:



Click Submit Information when you have completed the form.

After you click Submit, you will be redirected to a Payment Methods page. An Invoice Monthly account has already been added for you. You also have the option to create other accounts on this page.

There are two additional types of accounts you can create:

  1. KUMC Billing/Grant Number
  2. Provide only if free-KUMC ONLY


To add an account, follow these steps:

  1. Choose the appropriate Account Type from the dropdown menu.
  2. Type any identifying information in the KUMC Billing/Grant Number or a description of the payment method field. Please keep in mind that KUMC Billing/Grant Numbers must be exactly 8 characters long.
  3. Click Add Account.
  4. Accounts will show up in the Your Current Accounts table.


When you are done adding accounts, click Finished Adding Accounts.

Please note: If you need to change, add, or delete an account later, you can state it in the notes field of a new ILLiad request or contact the Copyright and Document Delivery Office.
