Monmouth College's Hewes Library participates in a sharing alliance of 90 Illinois libraries. Monmouth College affiliates (students, faculty, staff) may borrow materials, for free, from I-Share institutions via their library account. The I-Share database contains over 12.9 million unique bibliographic records and nearly 38 million item records. This enormous consortial collection, combined with I-Share’s resource sharing services, provides ready access to a collection that ranks among the world’s greatest research libraries.
Patrons from outside the immediate Monmouth College community are encouraged to contact their local public library for ILL service.
