Borrow


In alignment with the University Guest Guidelines, the library is only able to allow current UIS students, staff, and faculty to study in the library. This includes printing, scanning, and browsing the stacks. Current library card holders (alumni cards, friends of the library cards, and Lincoln Library reciprocal cards) can continue to use our Grab-and-Go service to request and check out materials.


Library Card for UIS students, faculty, and staff

Your UIS i-card is your library card.  Bring it with you every time you come to the library.  All students, faculty, and staff must present their current i-card to check out materials.

Online Students, please see the Online Student Guide for information about acquiring library materials. 

Campus Information Technology Services (ITS) offers equipment loans.  For more information visit their page.
