Copy a request

You may want to copy ("clone") a request when:

  • You need a previously requested item again
  • A publication has multiple volumes so that each volume appears as a separate request
  • You need another copy of an item because the loan period is too short

To copy/clone a request:

  • Log into your ILLiad account.
  • Select the request you want to clone from the list of 'All Requests'. 
  • Select “Clone Request” located at the top left of the screen. By default, this link won't appear if you have reached 50 active requests.
  • Enter or edit any information on the cloned request.
  • Submit the request.

The cloned request should display in your list of pending requests.
