Borrowing: Books and Media


You may borrow as many DePaul books as you like for four weeks, and renew them as often as you like (unless someone else recalls them). To avoid late fees or fines, logon and renew books online.


Our I-Share program allows you to request and borrow books directly from 90+ academic libraries in Illinois.  Books usually arrive in 3-4 days. 

Movies and CDs


The DePaul Library has an in-depth collection of movies -- popular as well as documentaries -- and CDs across the music spectrum. You may borrow 2 DVDs (or videos) and 2 CDs at a time for one week.
