ILL forms on Web

We have just linked our ILL request forms to our library home page.
The only real issue for us was how to limit the service
to patrons affiliated with the University.  Linking to the 
circulation database of valid library card numbers was thought to be
too problematic.  We finally decided to "require" that a valid ID
number be submitted on the form and check it manually the same way
ILL requests on paper are done.  This seems a rather "low-tech"
solution considering the context. How are others dealing with this?
