Your Barcode number is 2251100 followed immediately (no spaces) by your student/faculty/staff ID number. It will look something like this: 22511000123456.


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.


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

  1. click on "Find Books/Media"
  2. search for books or media (you will be searching the Phillips Library catalog first, just to be sure we don't own it!)
  3. change the drop down menu at the search box to "Search All I-Share Libraries"

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