I-Share and Milner Storage Requests Currently Unavailable

Illinois Library Delivery Service has been suspended until further notice. Anyone who receives notices to return I-Share or Illinois State University items can disregard those messages, as I-Share library materials will not be considered overdue. Items can also be renewed online from the Library Accounts option under Quicklinks on Milner Library’s home page (video explanation available). Any materials that had been requested through I-Share that have not arrived at Milner will be held at their current location. Local requesting has also been impacted by this suspension. Items from North Storage and campus delivery are unavailable at this time. In addition, many libraries are not participating in Interlibrary Loan for the time being. Patrons with any questions should contact our librarians for research assistance.
