If you would like to directly request books that the IRC does not have - or if you want to see what IRC books you have checked out, renew online, etc, here's how:


Create an IRC Catalog Account / Renew and Request Online

  • From the IRC home page
  • Link to "My Account" (next to "Catalog" on left side)
  • Link to "Create New Account" (below "Login")
  • Fill in both "Basic Information" and "Library Account Information"
  • Make sure to type your complete IMSA ID number in "Barcode"
  • Choose "Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy"
  • "Submit"

Once your account is set up, go to "Catalog" on the IRC home page. Once you've logged in, you can:

--Request books from other I-Share libraries if the IRC does not own.

--Go to "Checked Out Items" to renew (if prior to due date).

--Check the status of requested items, fines, etc.
