How can I create a library account?
It’s easy, just use the barcode on the back of your ID and your last name to login.
What is I-Share?
I-Share is an Interlibrary Loan network of over 80 academic libraries in Illinois. You can visit these libraries or have items sent to Flaxman for pick-up. Shipping takes 3-5 business days. To request items, sign in with your library account.
Reserves? What's that?
Reserves are books and materials that your instructor has asked the library to set aside for their courses. The materials are library use only and can be checked out for 3 hours at a time. You can use the scanners and/or copiers located within the library to make a PDF or a physical copy.
