You will be able to edit your personal information in the event it changes. Please keep this information current. Email notifications will be sent to the email address you use to register your Interlibrary Loan Account. You will be notified at this email address when your materials have arrived. Electronic versions of materials will be made available for viewing and download in your Interlibrary Loan Account. Items that are delivered through the postal service will be mailed to the address listed in your Northcentral University Account.

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 into your Interlibrary Loan Account in the future. Choose anything you like, such as your name, abbreviations, or an alphanumeric code. We recommend that you follow good security practice and choose a password that is different from those you use to access other systems. Your password will be encrypted and only known by you.
