The patron log-in method for Interlibrary Loan will be changing to the University of Minnesota's LDAP (U of M Internet ID and Password) authentication on Wednesday, January 11th.
At present, patrons create their own ILLiad user names and passwords. When we change to LDAP authentication, patrons who currently use a personal ILLiad username (non-U of M Internet ID) will be directed to a registration page where they will need to create a new account . ILL staff will then merge their old account with the new one. Patrons who currently use their U of M Internet ID as their username do not need to re-register; they will be directed to the Main Menu once they log in.
This change means that users no longer need to maintain a separate username and log-in to use Interlibrary Loan.
Please let us know if there are questions.
