To request an item through Interlibrary Loan or Scan & Deliver, you must first identify yourself to the library´s ILL system by using your ONID Username and Password. To obtain your ONID information, please visit the OSU Network ID page.

Registration has three purposes:

  1. Entering your personal information into the ILL system means you will not have to supply the information again when making future requests.
  2. Having your ONID email and mail addresses on file enables us to notify you promptly and deliver materials accurately when your request arrives in the library.
  3. By specifying your ONID Username and Password, you will have access to information about your requests. You will also be able to view the status of current requests, to review the list of items you have requested in the past, and request renewals of ILL materials online.
