Before We Get Started
You'll be using a lot of Kraemer Family Library resources while researching your assignments. There are a few steps you need to take to ensure that your library use goes smoothly.
Illiad Interlibrary Loan
If you cannot locate the materials you need through Kraemer Library or Prospector, you may request them through ILLiad, our interlibrary loan service. This service can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. The service is free in most cases for all UCCS students, staff, and faculty! See Interlibrary Loan Policies for more details.
NOTE: Journal articles are almost always sent electronically. Books, dissertations, microfilm, and other print materials willbe shipped through snail mail and can take two to three weeks to arrive. Do your research early!
To create an account in ILLiad, just click on the ILLiad link and select the box that says First Time Users (see screen shot below). Read the registration information and then select the link at the bottom of the screen for first time users. Fill in the form that appears.
