How to Use the Library Catalog

Learn how to search the library catalog with our online tutorials.

Intro to the Library Catalog

Learn how to search for UIS library materials in the library catalog with our tutorials on this guide. You can use the library catalog to:

  • Log into your library account
  • Search for items at Brookens Library
  • Request items for pickup
  • View items you have checked out and renew items online

If any item is not available in the Brookens Library catalog, you can search and request items within the I-Share catalog, which includes most academic libraries in the state of Illinois. You can also easily toggle between searching Brookens Library and I-Share within the catalog.

We have also created and recorded a workshop that covers many aspects of the new catalog in detail. 

If you have any questions, please ask your questions in the library chat box or contact a librarian.
