All Virginia Tech students, faculty, and staff, regardless of your location of study, may request materials on ILLiad for materials:

  • not owned by Virginia Tech (print or ebooks, articles from journals and conference proceedings, book chapters, standards, and technical papers)
  • owned by Virginia Tech but are unavailable for use (print books)
  • owned by Virginia Tech and available in print (books, articles from journals and conference proceedings, book chapters, standards, and technical papers)

We ship ILLiad requests via UPS to users outside the immediate Blacksburg campus area (Montgomery, Giles and Pulaski counties).

Articles, book chapters, and many technical papers are delivered in PDF format to your ILLiad account.  Occasionally, due to copyright restrictions, a paper copy of an article or standard will be sent to the mailing address listed on your ILLiad account.
