Request Items

Staff, students, faculty and emeritus faculty can request items from other libraries.

I-Share will quickly deliver physical items from Illinois academic libraries.   Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) allows you to request scanned articles and items not available in I-Share.

If you have trouble logging in, please see setting up a Library account.  If you still have trouble, contact us.

I-Share: Request books and media Heading link

  1. Search I-Share for an item
  2. Sign in (top left)
  3. Click on what you need!

Do you need your item sent to a library closer to you?  Change the “preferred pick-up location” to any institution participating in I-Share. You’ll get an email when the item is ready to pick up, usually in 3-5 business days.
