What can I borrow from libraries in the I-Share Network?
Most books held by other libraries in the I-Share network can be borrowed by Rush patrons, but libraries may choose not to lend books in their Reserve and Reference collections.
Can I borrow e-Books and e-Journals through I-Share?
e-Books and e-Journals can't be borrowed through I-Share and are by default excluded from your results. Check "Show e-Resources to which I don't have access" to include electronic resources at other libraries in your search results. To request journal articles and book chapters which are held by other other libraries, make an Interlibrary Loan request.
