ILLiad Logon - RCS ID and password option information

RCS ID and Password Logon Option for ILLiad

Your RCS ID and password can be used to logon to ILLiad. To activate this option, please follow the instructions below.

  • If you used your RCS ID when you registered for ILLiad, contact Interlibrary Loan. We'll enable your record for that option.
  • If you used a different username when you registered for ILLiad, you'll need to create a new ILLiad record. Logon to ILLiad using your RCS ID and password. This creates a new record for you. Then contact Interlibrary Loan. We'll move your ILLiad history to your new record and your original record will be disabled.
    Note: if you appended @rpi.edu to the end of your RCS ID when you registered, you'll need to create a new record.
  • Continue to use your ILLiad password until you receive an email confirming your record logon change.
