Library Shifting

Sep 3, 2009

Over the next six months, the Library will be shifting large numbers of books and journals in the Main Stacks and other locations as part of long-term collection management and building projects. Library users may find more items in the online catalog with a status of "in process" during this period, and may also find that materials maintain this status for longer than usual. 

Library users are encouraged to check I-Share, the statewide catalog, to see if a copy is available from another library in the I-Share consortium.   For instructions on requesting books online via I-Share, see or call the Library Phone Center at (217) 333-8400. 

Books not owned by an I-Share library, may be available through the Library’s Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery Office.  Library users can also seek assistance from subject specialists listed at
