We know that the Illinois Governor has lifted the mask mandate statewide, but we want to make sure that we are as safe as we can be. So our campus has decided that masks are still needed when visiting any building on campus, including your Lewis Library.
Let’s make this next semester amazing, and keep all of our loved ones as safe as kittens.
Your Lewis University Library will be closed Sunday, September 6th and Monday, September 7th in honor of the Labor Day holiday. We will reopen at 7:30am on Tuesday, September 8th.
“Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.” (Dept of Labor)
We’re excited to announce that your Lewis Library will be opening for current Lewis Students, Staff, and Faculty starting on Monday, August 24th. These are only our opening week hours, and our regularly scheduled semester hours will start the first week of classes.
Please let us know if you have any questions! We are always happy to help!
You can now borrow from over 91 libraries in Illinois. All you have to do is login to I-Share with your Lewis credentials (same as MyLewis).
Click on “All I-Share Libraries” and search for your item. Click on the title of your item, and scroll down to the “How to Get It” section.
You will see all of the institutions that have that item. Click on the arrow to the right of I-Share and a form will appear.
Verify that the information is correct and click on “Send Request.” That’s it! Your request has been submitted. If you want to check on the status of your request, renew your loans, or check on fines/fees, etc. you can click on your name in the upper right corner of the screen and select “My Library Card.”
We don’t recommend requesting textbooks via I-Share, as many textbooks are not lend-able by other institutions, and loan periods are usually only one month tops with no renewals.
IT help will not be available in the library this semester, but don’t fret! You can still get their help by follow these steps.
