Finding Books Using Library Catalogs

As a Monmouth College patron, you have access to three tiers of library catalogs. 

Step 1: Hewes Library Catalog

  • Locate books, DVDs, media, software, music owned in Hewes Library
  • Catalog does NOT contain articles
  • Items are immediately available to you
  • Advanced search available


Step 2: I-Share Catalog

  • Locate books and media owned in Illinois academic libraries
  • To request an item first create a library account
  • Materials are delivered to Hewes Library in 3-5 days
  • Once you register, remember to monitor your library account! The transactions you make with I-Share libraries are not monitored by Hewes Library.
  • I-Share FAQ


Step 3: WorldCat

  • A larger, international library catalog, WorldCat, allows identification of materials beyond the Hewes Library and the I-Share Catalog. (Be sure to check these catalogs first.)
  • Materials identified in WorldCat should be requested using ILLiad.  Learn more about ILLiad.
  • Items may take 7-14 days to arrive.
