Library Catalog

The Library Catalog and the Classic Catalog .

Library Catalog

You can search both the U of I Library Catalog and the I-Share Catalog via a single interface. I-Share is a shared public catalog for 86 CARLI (Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois) member libraries. The Library Catalog has replaced the older ClassicCatalog, although the Classic Catalog is still available to use. You can search the local U of I Catalog through either the Library Catalog or the Classic interface. We are currently transitioning to the new library catalog from the Vu-find catalog you may have seen before, so some links may still lead to the Vu-find catalog.



 Here are some of the features you'll find in the Library Catalog:

  • A single simple search box
  • Refine search by subject, title, topic, language, format, and more
  • Search the U of I library catalog or all I-Share libraries at once, including item status and location information
  • Request UIUC items
  • Log in using your NetID and password
  • Includes HathiTrust titles
  • Subject heading and call number searching
  • Advanced search options


Classic Catalog 

Researchers can still use the Classic Catalog. This catalog allows for Call Number and Subject heading browsing.
