To request book chapters, you'll need to login to a system called ILLiad. If you're not already logged in, you'll be prompted to login with your Oswego username & password.

If you've never used ILLiad before, you'll need to provide your contact information by completing the form that appears.

  2. Fill out the form with the information you have about the book chapter.

Good to know

Time frame: Because all chapters are shared with us electronically, you'll usually get them within a few days.

We'll email you when the item has arrived. You will have 30 days to download the PDF, and then it will be removed from our system. (Don't worry - your downloaded PDF will continue to work.)

Copyright restrictions: Due to copyright restrictions, we can only borrow 1 chapter or 10% of a book (whichever is smaller).
