About Library/Interlibrary Loan Accounts

JenningsILL uses the University NetId and password combination that is required for Blackboard and email logins. It allows patrons to place and monitor requests. Patrons can sign up for email or text notifications so they will know the moment their request is filled. This account also allows patrons to monitor loans of Jennings Library materials.

Some of the areas in the account are:

  • Checkouts - where you can view current things you have checked out.
  • Requests – where you make interlibrary requests and track the status of requests. 
  • Profile – includes your name, email address and phone number. Make sure you check the email listed for library alerts.

First Time Login Steps

From the link below (or from "My Account" or "Interlibrary Loan" on the library home page), enter your Caldwell NetId user name and password. This is the same information used to log into Blackboard and your Caldwell email.

You will now be in your individual library loan account.


The library does not process ILL requests for textbooks.
