Create Your Library Accounts

If you're looking for a book that isn't available at IIT, you can search for it elsewhere and have it delivered to Galvin. The I-Share catalog is a consortium of over 90 academic libraries in Illinois, and WorldCat contains the holdings of more than 8,000 libraries worldwide.

IIT/I-Share Accounts

New Students, Faculty, and Staff: your local library account will be created automatically. If you are a new student, your account will be available at the start of the semester as long as you have registered for classes. You will still need to login to your online account to check due dates and renew items.

If you are a Visiting Scholar, your Department will need to verify your information. Please see our Visiting Scholar page. 

With your I-Share Account, you can:

  • Request books from other universities in the I-Share Catalog
  • View checked out books
  • Renew books
  • See if there are any fines or holds on your account

To login to your account, simply enter your IIT ID number (including the A) and your last name.

WorldCat/MyILL Accounts

MyILL is the library’s interlibrary loan system. Use this when the library or I-Share does not have the books you need. Books can be requested from the WorldCat catalog. You can also use your MyILL account to request articles that the library does not have available in full-text. MyILL services are free to the IIT community.

Login to you MyILL account.
