Lunch with a Librarian

Ever wondered what a UIC librarian does? HINT: It's not "shushing" loud students.

The librarians of UIC are here to support your college experience beyond research and coursework.

Come have lunch and chat with a small group of UIC librarians on engaging topics that highlight the services, offerings, and direction of Richard J. Daley Library.

Get to know your librarians during the following sessions:

  • "Secret Lives of Librarians"
  • "Research Declassified"
  • "Your Voice, Your Library"

Being a librarian is much more than locating books on a shelf. Find out what a librarian gets up to when they’re not asked how to find peer-reviewed articles for a research paper.

Meet your friendly UIC librarians and learn about their day-to-day at UIC and what a career in librarianship looks like.

Want to get something off your chest? Let’s hear it!

This session is for students who want to express what they hate or love about the Richard J. Daley Library. Come and dialogue with librarians who can advocate for change and hear about their ideas for our library.

Together we can create a shared vision and a library that reflects the needs and ideals of the entire UIC community.
