The UIC Library has four physical locations in three Illinois cities, in addition to the UIC School of Law Library.  Please see our Library Hours.  For UIC campus-level maps, see UIC Maps.

Currently, UIC Library buildings are open only to UIC-affiliated patrons (with an active NetID and i-Card), or patrons from other I-Share libraries (with an ID card from their institution).

Masks are required.

Check Out a Book

The book stacks are open.  Visitors may opt instead to locate and request books online before visiting, to pick up from the circulation desk or through low-contact delivery.

Special Collections and University Archives

Special Collections access is currently by advance appointment only, perhaps with separate visiting hours.  See Visit Special Collections for more information.

Food and Drink

Food is not currently permitted in the Library.  Drinks are OK, but only in covered containers.  See Can I eat or drink in the Library for more information.
