About the Library

The library is open to the public; university affiliation is not required.

Borrowing Items

Please come visit the library during our the hours listed above to browse our shelves. You can search for items using the Illinois Heartland Library System (IHLS) SHARE online catalog.

Obtaining Items

Items in our collection can be borrowed in person at the AEMS Media Library during our library hours. Requests can also be placed online using the SHARE Catalog. When requesting an item, you can choose any IHLS library as your pick-up location (e.g., the Mahomet Public Library, or most school libraries in the central Illinois area). Similarly, if another library has an item that you want, you can choose to pick it up at AEMS.

WorldShare Interlibrary Loan

Our items can also be obtained through OCLC's WorldShare service. Through WorldShare, our items can be shipped to nearly any library in Illinois, and possibly outside the state. For more information about borrowing through WorldShare, please contact the AEMS librarian.

Managing Your SHARE Account Online

To log into your account using the SHARE catalog, click on My Account on the top of the SHARE screen, then Log In/Register . Use the barcorde number on your AEMS borrower's card; your PIN is the last 4 digits of the phone number you provided us (click on “Profile” to change your PIN). Once you are logged in, you may place holds, renew items, see what you have checked out and their due dates, and much more.
