I-Share borrowing resumes Sept. 21

Beginning Sept. 21, contactless pickup service from the DePaul University Library will be expanded to include I-Share borrowing and lending. Using the new LibrarySearch, faculty, staff and students will be able to request items from other I-Share libraries and select a pickup location of either the John T. Richardson Library, the Loop Campus Library, or another I-Share library that is convenient for you.

If an item you need is not available from DePaul, try widening your search to I-Share, a system of 89 academic libraries throughout the state of Illinois. Use LibrarySearch to find books available to borrow from participating libraries, place requests for pickup at DePaul, and track pending requests. You will be notified when your items are ready for contactless pickup. Remember, a DePaul ID will be required at pickup.

To place a request, be sure that you’re signed into LibrarySearch. Scroll down to see if the item is available from other libraries, and then click the I-Share button to request. Your item will be delivered to the campus you select, generally within five to seven business days. Check the Library website for Item Pick-up Hours, and please note that Richardson Library pickup hours will also be expanding on Sept. 21 to 9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

If you haven’t tried LibrarySearch yet, a video tutorial will provide a brief overview. Please get in touch and Ask a Librarian if you need help finding items or placing an I-Share request.​
