Get It!

Information on using Get It! to obtain resources from the Jessie C. Eury Library and other libraries.

The Jessie C. Eury Library offers several ways to get the books and resources you need for your courses using "Get It!."

Get It! has several options for requesting items depending on

  • Where you live or How frequently you are on campus,

  • What item you want,

  • Where that item is, and How you want it delivered.

Where you live makes a big difference in How you can get items.

Locate the best description of where you live (Near LCU, In Illinois, In the U.S., or Outside of the U.S.) and read that section for more information. 


Near LCU

If you come to campus for classes or live within driving distance of Lincoln, IL, the best way to obtain books and other resources is in person. 

Pick Up in the Library:  

  • You can use Get It! From LCU or From I-Share and request books be delivered to the Jessie C. Eury Library.
  • You can also Get It! from Other Libraries and pick those books up in person. 

Books to You:

  • Do you come to campus but can't come directly to the Jessie C. Eury Library due to scheduling?
  • That's okay! You can use our Books to You option to have books or equipment delivered to your classroom. 

In Illinois

If you live in Illinois but don't come to campus regularly for class: 

Pick up books at the I-Share library nearest you:
