Entering your personal information into the ILLiad system means you will not have to supply the information again when making future requests.

Having your e-mail address on file enables us to notify you promptly when your materials arrive in the library.

By entering your university NetID, you will have secure access to information about your requests, and you will also be able to review the list of items you have requested in the past.

About your Username and Password

During registration, you will be asked to enter your Georgetown University NetID and Password. You will use your NetID and Password when logging on to the ILLIAD system in the future. PLEASE NOTE: The NetID (Username) and password are case sensitive.

This is your university identifier. It is the username you will use when logging in to the system.
Choose anything you like. We recommend that you follow good security practice and choose a password that is a combination of letters and numbers. ILLiad will encrypt your password, so it will remain secure. Only you will know your password. The ILL office does not have access to your password information, lost password requests or changes to a password can only be done through the system online.

If you do not have a NetID or do not know what it is, you can send an email to or call the library at 202 687-1448.
