How Do I?
Borrowing and Renewing Material
For Items checked out from SIU Medical Library: Call the Circulation Desk at 217-545-2122 or stop by in person and ask to have the items renewed.
For Items checked out from another library through I-Share: See the instructions for Borrowing Materials Through the I-Share VuFind Catalog
Items from another library obtained through Interlibrary Loan (not through I-Share):
Contact the Interlibrary Loan Department at 217-545-2124 or email Int.Lib.Loan@siumed.edu.
Use I-Share VuFind to search for library materials in Illinois, check the availability of items, and place requests. Users must create a new account the first time they request items through VuFind. See the Interlibrary Loan page for more information on requesting an item from another library. Paper request forms are available at the Circulation Desk or use our online book request form.
A recall may be placed on circulating materials at a user's request. Materials may be recalled to the Library at any time, usually after the first four-week loan period. Call the Circulation desk at 217.545.2122, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by the Circulation desk in person to inquire about recalling an item.
Currently, resources linked through the proxy server can be accessed by School of Medicine students and employees using their siumed.edu email ids and passwords.

Go to the E-Journals A-Z List and search or browse for the journal. If it appears in the list click on the icon. Use the link to full text, or if the year/volumne that you want is not included in full text, try the link for "Search for print copy in SIU Medical Library Catalog." If the e-journal search is unsuccessful, try search the Medical Library online catalog since the Library may have the journal only in print copy.
