Circulation & Reserves

Currently enrolled students may borrow materials using a valid student ID. For information about circulating items and loan periods at the IIT Chicago-Kent Law Library, please see Borrowing Materials.

Faculty Reserve

Members of the faculty may place items on reserve when all members of a class need to utilize a resource. Students may borrow items on a short loan, typically 3 hours. Request Faculty Reserve items from the Service Desk on the 9th floor. Search for items on Faculty Reserve using the course reserve search in the catalog.

I-Share

In addition to items held in the IIT Chicago-Kent Law Library, students have access to the collections of 75+ other academic libraries in Illinois. Use the ‘Request from an I-Share Library' button in the catalog to request an item. (New users of the service will need to create an account before placing a request.) Illinois Institute of Technology will automatically be chosen as the pick-up library. The pick-up location DTC SERVICE DESK should be used to receive items at the IIT Chicago-Kent Law Library. Items typically arrive in 5-7 days. Students are notified by email when the item is received and ready for pick-up. Renewals and requests are managed by students through their Library Account. Students may also borrow items from any I-Share library in person by presenting a valid student ID.

Interlibrary Loan

Items not available at the IIT Chicago-Kent Law Library or through I-Share may be requested through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Use the ‘Request Item through Interlibrary Loan' button in the catalog to request an item. Alternatively, send an email with citations for items needed to illreq@kentlaw.iit.edu. Students are notified by email when items are received. ILL requests can require up to two weeks to arrive.
