If you are enrolled as a distance student, the University of Illinois Library will mail you books from our collection. More details on how to request and return books via mail can be found in our Distance Learners and Instructors guide.

If you live in or near Illinois, you may have access to an I-Share library. If so, you can borrow items onsite or order books and have them sent to that library free of charge. Refer to this map to see all if you live near an I-Share library. You may also return books to I-Share libraries free of charge. 

If you live outside of Illinois but are near another academic library, you may want to consider taking advantage of one of our Reciprocal Borrowing Agreements. This gives you additional resources and allow broader access to scholarly material at other libraries.
