Also included in staff privileges is access to:

  • I-Share a consortium of 76 institutions features an online catalog that contains more than 42 million items. Set up your online account using our pdf or video guide, order online and the item is shipped here in a few days. You’ll receive an email when it arrives.
  • MyILL which provides access to materials not available in I-Share. This service borrows from more than 8000 libraries and research institutions from across the US. You will need to set up an account in the MyILL system and you’ll be notified by email when your book, article or borrowed material arrives.
  • More information about both interlibrary loan systems can be found here.
  • More than 100+ research databases, newspapers, online journals and ebooks.
