Services & Policies Have Changed

Library services and policies on this page have been updated in response to the COVID-19 emergency.

Borrowing & Electronic Resources (UChicago Students, Faculty, & Staff Only)

At this time, only current University of Chicago faculty, students, and staff are eligible to borrow from the Library's collections, either in person or via Paging & Pickup.

Most electronic resources are also limited to current University of Chicago faculty, students, and staff, due to licensing restrictions.

Others who wish to consult materials from our collections are encouraged to contact their local academic or public library to request materials via their Interlibrary Loan service.

Limited Access - UChicago Students, Faculty, & Staff Only

Library buildings are offering on-site services only for UChicago faculty, other academic appointees, postdocs, students, and staff with a current UChicago ID. See Library Hours for details by location.

Everyone entering library buildings is expected to follow the current University of Chicago Health Pact, which includes wearing a face covering regardless of vaccination status.
