PART I: Choosing the Right Tools - p. 3 of 5

 

2 – Search for books

 

The online "book catalogs" are tools you can use to help you find printed books.

 

To find books that we own at an RU Library, click on the “RU Catalog” link on the Library website. As RU students, you are able to check out any materials in person, and you can request materials be sent between campuses.

 

RU also belongs to something called I-Share, which is a group of many academic libraries in Illinois that partner to share resources. Partners include schools such as Columbia College, DePaul, and the University of Illinois Chicago. As an RU student, you can visit any of these libraries in person to check out books with your RU ID, or you can request those books be sent to an RU campus. To find books from other schools, click on the “I-Share” link on the Library website.

 

If you need help searching the RU or the I-Share catalogs, ask an RU librarian for help or view these useful tutorials:
