DePaul University Libraries > Services > Borrowing > I-Share


I-Share is a consortium of Illinois colleges, universities and libraries with a reciprocal borrowing agreement. In addition to requesting items from other I-Share schools online, I-Share Students, Faculty and Staff may check out library materials on-site at the University Library with a current school ID card. The I-Share patron's library account must be active. The University Library staff cannot update I-Share patron library accounts.
