Faculty & Staff

Services for faculty and staff of IIT, IITRI, Shimer, and VanderCook.

Borrowing & Circulation

Collections at IIT and from dozens of Illinois academic libraries are available through the I-Share catalog. Contact Circulation staff to set up your library account and check out your circulation privileges. Circulation privileges are also extended to faculty spouse/partners. Simply complete the Borrowing Contract and submit to circulation staff.

Interlibrary Loan

Set up your own interlibrary loan account in MyILL to request journal articles and items not available in I-Share.

Classes & Workshops

To maximize the resources available through IIT Libraries, faculty are encouraged to contact their assigned Subject Specialist. Librarians can offer instruction in general library resources, or can provide focused, specialized instruction sessions on applicable and necessary research tools for a specific discipline. See the Classes & Workshops page for more information.


Faculty may place reading materials on reserve to allow students maximum access to materials set aside by faculty to assist in coursework. This may include reading material, practice exams, problem sets, etc. Reserve materials may be from the library's collection or may be an instructor's personal copy. IIT Libraries follow copyright law and fair-use guidelines and reserves the right to refuse items for Reserve that do not meet our policy. See the Reserves page for more information.
