Yes, you can do a Custom Search to find the list of Blocked Institutions.

1.  From the ILLiad Home, there are three search boxes.  For the "Search Addresses:" box, to the right of the words "Search Addresses" there is an arrow that when you click on will allow you to do a Custom Search of the Lender Addresses.    Here is a link to the documentation on the Custom Search.

3.  You will see [LenderAddresses.LenderString] Begins with <enter a value> x.  Click on the LnederAddresses.Lenderstring.
4.  On the left, you will see the Table, which is LenderAddresses and on the right are the different fields.  Select the field "Blocked."  Then choose Accept.
5.  Click on the Contains and choose equals.
6.  Click on the <enter a value> box and type in "Yes" without the quotes.
