Borrowing Materials from Other Libraries

The Carl Sandburg College Library offers two ways to borrow materials from other libraries, I-Share and OCLC through Randy Moore. To choose the best method of delivery, please read about the choices below.

 

 

Books

The fastest method to borrow books from other libraries is the I-Share system. Materials arrive, on average, in 2-4 business days.

Search the Sandburg Library Catalog first before requesting materials. If the item is not there, change the search option to “All I-Share Libraries”

Once you’ve found your title, login to your I-Share account. (Show me how!)

Click ‘Request 1st Available’ tab & Request button

If a book is not available in the I-Share catalog, place a request on OCLC through contacting Randy. (Volumes from a multi-volume set are best requested from OCLC.)

                 

Articles

Look up the journal title first in Proquest , Ebsco, or other Databases.

Articles from journals and newspapers that Sandburg does not have a subscription to must be requested on OCLC through by contacting Randy. Materials arrive, on average, in 1-3 business days.
