To request an item through Interlibrary Loan, you must first identify yourself to the library's Document Delivery system. To do this you fill out a registration form using your Web browser.
Registration has three purposes:

  • Entering your personal information into the Document Delivery system means you will not have to supply the information again when making future requests.
  • Having your e-mail and regular mail addresses on file with Interlibrary Loan enables us to notify you promptly and deliver materials accurately when your request arrives in the library.
  • By specifying a Username and Password of your choosing, you will have secure access to information about your requests. 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 choose a Username and Password. You will use this Username and Password when logging on to the Document Delivery system in the future.

We suggest using your Cal Poly Pomona E-mail name since that is unique to each person on campus.
Choose anything you like. Document Delivery System will encrypt your password, so it will remain secure. You can put a "password hint" to remind you. Examples: my favorite color, the state I was born in, my anniversary. Only you will know your password.
