Answer

I-Share is a group of more than 80 Illinois libraries that share a catalog and allow their patrons to request books online from one another's collections. If DePaul does not own a book or if our copy is unavailable, requesting a copy through I-Share is the quickest way to request it. (If I-Share doesn't have the book, try ILLiad.)

You may request I-Share items using DePaul WorldCat Local anytime you see the "Borrow via I-Share" button.

The first time you request an item through I-Share, you will need to create an account.  Watch the this short video on Creating An I-Share Account for information on how to complete this quick, one-time process.

Visit the I-Share User Account page to create your account.

You can also borrow directly from any I-Share library in person. (The Newberry Library is one exception in that none of its material may be requested or otherwise borrowed.)
