Non-OSU people associated with HMSC do not need to have an ONID account to register for ILL service. They may simply register by filling out this form and submitting it.

Everyone who registers for Interlibrary Loan service will receive an email message confirming successful registration. Please be sure to write down your new ILL username and password: you'll need to use them each time you place a request.
