Services Suspended During Library Closure
ALERT: Services Temporarily Suspended
Services involving physical materials are temporarily suspended while the Library's physical collections are inaccessible due to the Library buildings closure.
Services suspended during the Library closure include:
- Scan & Deliver
- Interlibrary Loan for physical materials or complete ebooks
- Mansueto requests
- Law Storage Collections requests
- Hold requests
- Search requests (Can't find it?)
We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to restore services as soon as possible.
ALERT: Interlibrary Loan Articles and Book Chapter Requests Accepted
Interlibrary Loan requests for articles and book chapters are being accepted, but there may be delays and/or limitations on what is available. Content published electronically is more likely to be obtained than scans from physical materials.
We are not currently able to borrow physical materials or complete ebooks.
ALERT: Electronic Access and Suggest a Purchase
It is possible that the Library has access to an electronic version of the material you need.
The Library has created an online guide to expanded and upgraded online content. The HathiTrust collaborative collection of digitized books has also released additional online book content to UChicago users through the Emergency Temporary Access Program.
If you cannot locate an electronic version and urgently need the full text, please submit a purchase request and write “needed during closure” in the Additional Comments section.
Faculty members, if this purchase is needed for teaching during Summer 2020, please follow the instructions at Course Reserve Setup and submit your requests via Canvas.
