Create Your Library Accounts
Create Your Library Account
IIT belongs to the I-Share consortium: a group of more than 70 academic libraries in Illinois with access to more than 32 million items. Creating a library account allows you to have books delivered right to Galvin library (or another branch if that's more convenient for you). It usually takes 2-3 business days to have a book delivered.
You can also use your account to tag favorite items in the catalog so that you can easily find them again later.

Create Your MyILL (interlibrary loan) Account
IIT subscribes to more than 60,000 online journals, but there may be others that you need access to. You can get copies of those articles delivered to you electronically. You can also request any books not available in the I-share catalog from more than 8,000 libraries around the world. It usually takes 2-3 business days to have a journal article e-mailed to you. Books take longer (more than a week) because they have to be mailed and shipped from outside of Illinois.
