Marking 50 Years of Regenstein

Last year, we invited you to join us in marking 50 years of the Regenstein Library. Dedicated at the heart of campus in October 1970, Regenstein broke new ground by uniting many scattered departmental libraries into a powerhouse for interdisciplinary research. Since its opening, Regenstein has been a place for exploration, discovery, and innovation for faculty and students. Take a moment to read the Reg at 50 Anniversary Announcement and UChicago Newsletter. We thank you for all of your support in helping make this anniversary a tremendous success.

Marking 10 Years of Mansueto

Now, we turn towards celebrating 10 years of the Mansueto Library throughout the 2021-22 fiscal year. We invite you to join us for upcoming virtual and in-person celebratory events. More information will be posted here soon as details become available.
