As an online distance learner, you have the same access and library privileges as an on-the-ground student, as well as some special services.
DePaul students who are part of a cohort or other partnership should also check this page to determine if they have any additional services available to them.
We will mail books to your home or office address. Books owned by DePaul usually arrive in 2-3 days. Books owned by other I-Share libraries will take longer and arrive 2-3 days AFTER they arrive at DePaul.
If you need help requesting books from DePaul, watch our WorldCat Local: Requesting To Have Books Sent Between Campuses video.
If you need help requesting books, watch our WorldCat Local: Requesting Books From I-Share video.
*If you are using a P.O. box address, books will be shipped via USPS.
Search the I-Share catalog to determine if one of our 80 + academic partner libraries owns a book. DePaul affiliates can borrow books in-person at these institutions by presenting a DePaul ID Card. Distance students living outside the Chicago area can request to have an ID mailed to them. More information is available on the DePaul ID Card Overview page.
You can search WorldCat.org to determine which library closest to you owns a book. Not all institutions are required to be open to the public or provide borrowing privileges.
