What is I-Share?
SAIC is a member of a group called I-Share, which includes 90+ other libraries throughout the state of Illinois. I-Share Libraries have all agreed to share materials with one another, giving students, faculty, and staff, access to a multitude of materials. This tool is especially useful when Flaxman items are checked out, or if they fall outside of the scope of Art + Design.
How to Use I-Share
Scenario 1: You find a Flaxman Library book marked "Not Available"
Scenario 2: You can't find a book in the Flaxman Library catalog
