The Library/IT Assessment is a revenue source dedicated to projects that improve library and computing services to UIC students. The Assessment is intended to enhance students' learning environments and to prepare them to be competitive in a technologically sophisticated world.
Since 2009, the Library has made significant improvements in its sites. Students now have access to ADA workstations, new desktop and wireless notebook computers with advanced software applications, high-capacity printers, remodeled group study rooms, and classroom spaces. Each library site has created comfortable seating areas with sofas, armchairs, and tables for informal student gatherings.
Remodeled spaces with multimedia and interactive whiteboards are available at the Richard J. Daley Library and the Library of the Health Sciences-Chicago. These interactive spaces provide shared learning environments essential for group study and collaborative projects.
Assessment funding also provides access to a wide variety of electronic resources across academic disciplines. Students may access electronic collections onsite or remotely with a valid UIC username and password.
Improvements vary at each location and are ongoing. To learn about specific advancements and future plans for electronic collections and for each UIC Library site, visit the Library/IT Assessment subject guide:
