If DePaul doesn't own the movie you need and you are a professor, please request it for course reserves or contact your department liaison and ask him or her to purchase a copy.  We also have interlibrary loan options for faculty and students:


Interlibrary Loan


Loan policies will vary by institution, so some of our I-Share consortial partners may allow you to check out the video; others may allow you to watch the video on-site at their library; and at others, you will have no access to films at all.

If you find that a specific school owns copy of a film through DePaul Worldcat Local that is available from an I-Share Library, a good rule of thumb is to call ahead and confirm their borrowing and viewing policies. Consult a map of Chicagoland I-Share libraries that provides contact information.


Chicago Public Library (or your local public library)


The Chicago Public Library has an extensive collection of documentary and feature films. You can go online and use the Chicago Public Library catalog to request items be held for you at the location of your choice.

  • Facets Multimedia is a private video rental/sales business located near the Lincoln Park Campus at 1517 W. Fullerton Avenue.
  • Other video rental or streaming services such as NetFlix, Redbox, Amazon, etc. may have the movie you need.
