From the Phillips Library homepage follow these steps to search the I-Share catalog:

  1. click on "Find Books/Media"
  2. select "Locate books & materials in Illinois libraries using the I-Share catalog"
  3. search for books or media

Once you have located an item you may request it by selecting the "Request Item" tab at the bottom of the catalog record.  

You need to have an I-Share account to request items. 

For more details on searching I-Share or creating an account in I-Share, which you will need to request items, please refer to our Library Information guide (click yellow tab labeled "Create an I-Share Account" or "Borrowing from Other Libraries). Find a video tutorial on how to use the I-Share system on our One Minute Mentor Tutorial page.
