I-Share Catalog Will Look Different

Starting June 1, the I-Share catalog for academic and research libraries in Illinois (including Dominican University) will look different. The catalog will let you do all the normal things you are used to doing, but you will also be able to tag items, create lists of favorites, and get formatted citations for items in the catalog. You can also view the Dominican University catalog in this same format.

You will need to create your own individual account in I-Share in order to request books, which you can do here. Further information is available on accounts on this page. We will have more instructions coming soon, and please Ask a Librarian if you need assistance.
