Borrowing Books Beyond SAIC
If you are seeking books that are unavailable in the library catalog, we recommend first checking if it can be requested through I-Share (linked below). If you aren't sure how to request books from I-Share, follow these instructions. If that does not work, the next step is to fill out the Interlibrary Loan form (ILL). You can search WorldCat (link below) to find books from other libraries. Library staff will do everything we can to get materials for current SAIC faculty, students, and staff through ILL when not available through I-Share. You can also explore this full list of locations (both near, far, and online) where you can find books.
