IFSI Library Information Update

Dear All,

Although the IFSI Library is currently closed physically, we are working to continue to provide information assistance to our IFSI staff, instructors, and Illinois first responder patrons. The Library website is available at https://fsi.illinois.edu/content/library/ and our online collection catalog can be searched from there. You may email the Library at fsi-library@illinois.edu with questions, research projects, and requests. 

Search and Request Materials - UPDATED April 7, 2020

Due to COVID-19, IFSI is limiting loaning hard copies of material to a case by case review. Electronic materials are still available but may be slightly delayed due to staffing limitations. However, IFSI librarians are working to support training and research in every way possible via phone, email, and providing access to digital full text materials. Once the situation is resolved, IFSI will return its interlibrary loan program to regular operation.

If you have items checked out from our library, the due dates have been extended indefinitely. Please keep your items until we provide updates on when items will be due.

Also available at the library website are links to our online subject guides (LibGuides) on the following subjects:

Also linked from the Library website (scroll down) is a PowerPoint that explains how to access full text articles at the UIUC Main Library from your computer in any location. Once in the UIUC Library full text access, you will have to login with your IFSI username and password. Several fire service-related journals are available.

We will continue to update you with further information as we develop our digital access and services.

Thank you for your understanding.
