The University of Illinois Library Catalog, also called VuFind, provides an easy, online way to search through all of the items available at any library on the Illinois campus. Vu-Find features include:

  • A single simple search box
  • The ability to refine searches by location, subject, title, topic, language, format, and more
  • The option to search UIUC libraries and I-Share libraries at once, including item status and location information (I-Share libraries are libraries at other universities that can send items to UIUC campus students with no additional cost)
  • Library user accounts to check fines, renew items, and request items for pick-up
  • Easy citation information for items
  • Social networking tools, such as leaving comments and tagging
  • Previews in Google Book Search

Please note: Our magazines are not included in the online catalog. Refer to each individual library's webpage (under "Locations & Hours") for a list of the magazines held there.
