Information for University Staff

Staff Meeting
"Thank you for the services provided to staff. It is very important to continue to have this as a resource."

Welcome to the University of Chicago Library

Campus Libraries

The University of Chicago of Library consists of six campus libraries that serve the University community. All are open to staff for research and study.

Borrow Materials

Most University staff members are eligible for access and borrowing privileges.

Use the Library Online

It is possible to conduct research from virtually anywhere using the Library's extensive collection of online journals, books, and digital images. If you have an internet connection, sign in to the system using your CNetID and password or UCHAD credentials (Medical Center employees).


 Multifunction printers/scanners/photocopiers are available at all campus libraries.

Attend Library Training Classes

Would you like to learn more about the Library, its resources, and how to use them to better advantage? Librarians can design a workshop specifically for you and your work group--at your office or in the Library. Examples of classes include an EndNote workshop for secretaries in one department, or a demonstration of research databases for staff engaged in a particular kind of research.

Getting Help

Whether you have a question related to your job or your personal research interests, our librarians are available to help you.

  • Ask a Librarian
    Contact a reference librarian by via phone, e-mail, or in person at each campus library.
  • Subject Specialists
    Librarians support scholarship in specific disciplines through collections and reference services.
