In January 2004, the Downtown Campus Library replaced Clark, the previous online
catalog with a new, integrated library system, WebVoyage. You can use WebVoyage
at the library desk or at http://library.ilcso.illinois.edu/iit/.
With the new system, you can find similar materials with More Like This, keep
your research for later use with MyBookbag, request email updates when the
library adds materials of interest to you, and renew your books online. More
about new WebVoyage features is available on the Library's web page,
http://library.kentlaw.edu. You will need your new bar-coded student ID
to check out books with the new online check-out feature. Please allow a few
extra minutes for your first online checkout or stop by the Library desk ahead
of time so the staff can make sure your account information is correctly in the
New E-mail Terminals
The next time you are in the Library and need to do a quick check of your
e-mail, you can use one of the Library's four new e-mail terminals. The
terminals are located across from the Service Desk, in front of the book sale
and career services collection, and will allow access to any Web-based e-mail
service, including your Kentlaw account via Webmail.
If you have any questions on using the terminals, please feel free to ask a
Library Suggestion Box

be posted on a bulletin board to the left of the box.
You are not limited to the suggestion box! Please send me an E-mail to:

Consideration for Others in the Library
Please try to maintain a quiet atmosphere in the Library
for the benefit of all those who are studying around you. If you need to work
in a group, study rooms are available. You may use any unreserved study room,
or make a reservation at the Service Desk with your current ID.
Study Room Policy
Study rooms are for group study by IIT students using the
Downtown Campus Library's resources. You may reserve a room in advance at the
Service Desk with your current ID.
Library Cell Phone Policy
Before entering the Library, cell phones must be turned off. In addition, you
must leave the Library before using your cell phone. We have been inundated
with complaints about the disturbances caused by cell phone usage in the
Library, which has forced us to adopt this policy.
For those of you with an emergency situation who must be reachable by cell
phone, you can leave your phone on ONLY if it gets your attention by some
method other than ringing. If you have one that vibrates quietly or uses a
blinking light, you can leave it on while you are in the Library. This
exception does not change the requirement that you leave the Library to use
