Using the University of Chicago Library


UIC tenure-system faculty

UIC tenure-system faculty may apply for borrowing privileges at all University of Chicago libraries: Regenstein, Social Service Administration (SSA), D' Angelo Law, Crerar, and Eckhart.

  • Request an authorized UIC Library Identification card at the Richard J. Daley Library Circulation Desk or via e-mail:
  • Present this card, along with a valid i-card, to staff in the Privileges Office in the Regenstein Library.
  • Most materials circulate for 16 weeks from D'Angelo Law, Eckhart, Regenstein, and SSA; and for 4 weeks from Crerar.
  • Renew materials through My Account in University of Chicago's online catalog, via e-mail, or in person. Telephone renewal requests are not accepted. After three renewals, items must be returned or, if still needed, taken back to the University of Chicago for re-charging in person.
  • Borrowers incur overdue fines and lost-book charges for books not renewed or returned in a timely fashion. Lost-book charges vary by item and by library. Books may be recalled at any time. Unresolved problems may result in the loss of borrowing privileges.
  • Books borrowed from the University of Chicago may be returned to any UIC library site. Allow 7 calendar days of transit to avoid overdue charges on materials if returning items through UIC Library.
  • Faculty may also request material from the University of Chicago through ILLiad for delivery to UIC.

Non-tenure-system UIC faculty and students

Non-tenure-system UIC faculty and students may use the collections and study at the University of Chicago Library but may not borrow directly:
