How to Login to Your Online Library Account

Use your Northern Seminary Single Sign On credentials (your Northern Seminary email address and password) to login to your library account. From any library online catalog page or any I-Share catalog page, click on the link in the upper right corner:

SSO Link

The first time that you use SSO with either I-Share or the Northern Seminary Library Online Catalog, you will be asked to provide your library barcode number in order to establish your Library Catalog Profile:

If you do not have a library barcode on the back of your Northern Seminary ID card, please contact the library at 630-620-2156 or in order to request your library barcode number.

Once you have established your Library Catalog Profile, you will be able to place requests for I-Share items, view and renew items that you have checked out, and see if you owe any library fines or fees:

Alumni, ACTS, Atla, or Community Borrowers:

Alumni, students from Chicago-area ACTS libraries, students from other Atla Reciprocal Borrowing schools, or Community Borrowers will not be able to use SSO to access their library account. There is a separate link that lets you login with the barcode from your library-supplied borrower card:

Other Borrowers

Please also note that while Alumni, ACTS, Atla, and Community Borrowers have access to resources from the Lisle campus library, they are not able to borrow materials from the I-Share system.
