WestCat/I-Share

Submarine books

WestCat is WIU Libraries' online search tool for finding books, periodicals, DVDs, and other materials. You can find the WestCat search box near the top of the library homepage (http://www.wiu.edu/libraries).



Interlibrary loan (ILL)

Just like face-to-face students, online students can request materials from other libraries through ILL.

I-Share

You'll usually want to start with I-Share. I-Share includes the resources of 76 Illinois libraries belonging to CARLI, the Consortium of Academic & Research Libraries in Illinois.

Illiad

If you can't find your resource in I-Share, the next step is to place a request in Illiad for libraries outside of CARLI.

This guide will tell you more about setting up accounts in I-Share and Illiad and using these services.
