REEEC logoTo locate available materials, please click on the logo to the left to search the library catalog.

  • when using the library catalog, try to use only one word, or an unique part of the title. (The library catalog lists items exactly how they've been entered into the system; for example, if you are looking for the title "Moscow does not believe in tears," try searching with the terms 'believe' or 'tears' as those will be more unique than 'moscow')
  • The catalog is updated about once a month due to the remote hosting service we have with LibrarySoft. If an item looks like it is borrowed, send an email to REEEC to verify its status, as it may have been returned in the interim.
  • If you prefer to browse the collection available through REEEC, try using the item lists featured below.


For more information or to request items, please contact REEEC at or (217) 244-4719. Please indicate how the materials will be used. The materials will be sent to you at no charge, but you will need to pay for return postage, insured for a proper amount. We will inform you as to how much insurance the material requires but in general, the minimum amount is $50 per item. The duration of the loan is usually 2-3 weeks, but this varies depending on demand.
