The Basics

     Do you have a Library barcode?

A library barcode serves as your Pace Library Card and allows you to request items from other Pace Library locations, to request books from Connect NY, and it is necessary to create an account in our Interlibrary Loan service.

If you do not have a barcode, you can get one at the Circulation/Front Desk in your home campus Library. (You can also request your barcode via email.)

Use your barcode to renew items or check the status of requested items online:

Interlibrary Loan

When you find an article listed in a research database, and the article is not immediately available to read, use the Search for Article link to search Pace's periodical holdings (print and electronic).  If you get a message that directs you to use Pace's Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) service to request a copy of the article, follow the appropriate link.

  • Articles (pdf files/photocopies) can take anywhere from 24 hours to 2 or 3 days to obtain. Choose electronic delivery via ILLiad when you register, but you may also pick up articles at the Library.
  • Books, conference proceedings and other documents are also available for request via Interlibrary Loan.
