Everyone is welcome to consult the Library’s print and electronic collections by visiting the Library.

Current faculty, students, and benefits eligible staff from the Catholic Theological Union are also eligible for quarterly borrowing privileges with three automatic renewals and a 25 concurrent item limit at no charge.

Getting a UChicago Library Card

To establish borrowing privileges, students should present a valid ACTS card and a current government-issued photo ID to the ID & Privileges Office; faculty and staff should present a current government-issued photo ID to the ID & Privileges Office.

You may make an appointment to be issued a Library Card to save time.

Your library barcode is the 7 digit number that appears directly below the scannable barcode on your Library card. You will be issued a PIN when you are issued your card.

Users who are ineligible for a CNetID will need to use their library barcode and PIN to login to My Library Account.
