The Library is Ready to Help During COVID-19
As we welcome the University of Chicago community back to campus for Autumn Quarter, we will begin reconnecting you with Library collections and spaces in new ways that incorporate University practices that protect the health and well-being of both patrons and Library staff. Due to the ongoing need to limit the number of people in our spaces, the Library’s on-site services will be offered only to faculty, other academic appointees, students, and staff with a current UChicago ID.
A reservation or appointment is required to enter Regenstein, Mansueto, and Crerar libraries, except for returns of library materials at Regenstein. D’Angelo Law Library is open only to Law School faculty, students and staff.
- Autumn 2020 On-Site Library Services Begin (September 28)
