Finding Books

Follow these steps to find a book in the library:

  1. Look up the title, author, or subject by searching the Library collection
  2. Find and write down the call number
  3. Go to the appropriate floor, get the book, and check it out with your student ID card at the Circulation desk on the 1st floor.

But what if the NEIU Library doesn't have the book you need?

Check to see if the book is held by other I-Share libraries. Click the blue  button on the right side of the book's record and follow the instructions.
