Tips on CLICS and ILLiad

  1. You need your Library Barcode Number for Intercampus Borrowing CLICS  and Interlibrary Loan ILLiad.
  2. Your Library Barcode Number is on the front of your Lehman I.D. card (e.g. 2 1982 01234 1234 ).
  3. Register your I.D. card at the Library Circulation Desk before you use CLICS or ILLiad for the first time.
