Login to Tipasa Interlibrary Loan

Important Instructions For Using Tipasa 

As part of our continued improvement to systems and services, we have upgraded our Interlibrary Loan to the new Tipasa system. For convenience, all previous ILLiad accounts have been transferred to Tipasa. 

Set or reset your password before first use. 

Before you can request books, chapters, or articles from Tipasa for the first time, you will need to set/reset your password. After requesting the new password, you will need to check your Columbia email account. Further password reset instructions will be included in the email.

[Please Note: This password reset does not impact your password for any other library or Columbia system.]


If you have previously reset your password, please proceed to login to Tipasa.

If you are having difficulty logging in, please contact our Interlibrary Loan department at ill@colum.edu or call 312-369-7152.
