UIUC Library Catalogs
You can now search both the U of I Library Catalog and the I-Share Catalog (Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois, 145 participating members) via a single interface called VuFind. The VuFind/ I-Share Catalog has replaced the older Classic I-Share integrated catalog. You can still search the local U of I Catalog through either the VuFind interface or the Classic interface. Here are some of the features you'll find in VuFind:
- A single simple search box
- Refine search by subject, title, topic, language, format, and more
- Search the U of I library catalog or all I-Share libraries at once, including item status and location information

Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Collections and Services / Slavic Reference Service
Since the consolidation of Slavic, Asian, Africana, Latin American and Caribbean departmental libraries into the International and Area Studies Library, the Slavic Reference, Acquisitions, and Cataloging staff continue to work, collaborate, and communicate with each other to create an ideal research space for SRL participants. All of the services associated with the Summer Research Laboratory for the last forty years are still in place. Throughout your stay, the Slavic Reference Staff are ready to assist you with research inquiries, verifying citations, locating materials and holding institutions, using research technologies, library access and policies, and with bibliographic sources.
Slavic Reference Service
Grainger Engineering Library: Summer I: M-F: 9:00 am-5pm; Summer II: Monday - Friday, 9:00 am-5:00 pm; Saturday-Sunday: 1:00-5:00 pm.
Wireless Access at UIUC
UI Public Wireless is the only campus network service available without either a NetID or a guest ID. The UI Public Wireless network is provided in a few campus and community locations where non-University-affiliated people are likely to visit. After filling out an informational form (online) and agreeing to the terms of service, you can use the UI Public Wireless service for a short time.
