CDLC ILL eForm Tutorials

How to use CDLC's new ILL eForm

Getting Started

To get started with the new eForm, you first need to contact the CDLC office to receive a registration code. CDLC will not release the registration code publicly. 

Once you have the code, head to the eForm homepage at eform.cdlc.org

Email, Username, and Password

After entering the registration code, you need to choose a username. One recommendation is to use your first initial and last name or your work email address if it is unique to you.

Contact Information, LOC, and OCLC codes

Fill in the rest of your contact information including your email, name, institution, work address, and phone number. You can also choose to include your OCLC or Library of Congress codes if you happen to know them. You can click on the links provided to see what your library’s LOC and OCLC codes are in the ILL Directory. Choose your home library system from the drop-down menu. If you are an academic, hospital or special library, choose the library system Capital District Library Council.
