New Look for the Library Catalog

The Library will be moving to a new interface to the Library catalog in June.  Features of the new NEIU Library Catalog include:

  • Cleaner, simpler look and feel with improved response times
  • Choice of your own username and password to access your library account
  • Ability to narrow your searches with simple clicks (“faceted searching”)
  • Options for adding comments and tags to catalog records
  • Direct links  to Google Book Search for brief previews

Plus, the same convenience of one-click requesting from I-Share is still available. If NEIU doesn’t own a book you need, just click Request this item to borrow the book from another academic library in Illinois.

You will need to create a new account to request materials from I-Share libraries and view your library account.  Visit Your Account in the NEIU Library Catalog to create a new account or read our Instructions for Creating a New Account in the NEIU Library Catalog for more information.

Changes have already been made to the I-Share catalog for requesting.  Go to https://i-share.carli.illinois.edu/all/vf to use the new I-Share catalog.

We are still working on the final look of the NEIU Library Catalog but a preview can be found at http://vufind.carli.illinois.edu/vf-nei/.
