  • I-Share:
    • This page shows how to search I-Share, a group of 90+ libraries in Illinois that share books,  for a textbook and request a book from I-Share.
  • Interlibrary Loan:
    • This page explains how to try an interlibrary loan request for a textbook if Milner and I-Share don't have your book.
