University Library spaces now open for study, computer use

Fall campus
(DePaul University/Jeff Carrion)
Space in the DePaul University Library is now open to current students, faculty and staff for independent study and computer use. For now, access will be limited to the second floor of the John T. Richardson Library on the Lincoln Park Campus. This includes 18 PC, two Mac and two Wacom workstations, in addition to open space for study. Library access will require a current DePaul ID, a reservation, and record of the #CampusClear app for that day. Learn more and reserve up to three hours per day through a new reservation system.

​To protect the health and safety of yourself and others, several library policies have been modified. Please wear a mask and sanitize your work area before and after use. No food or drink will be permitted in the library during this time.

Contactless pickup service continues at both the Loop Library and John T. Richardson Library. The hours for pickup in Lincoln Park have been expanded to Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. As of this week, library staff have also expanded services to include borrowing through I-Share, a consortium of 89 academic libraries throughout the state of Illinois. For a full list of our current services, please visit the COVID-19 and Library Services Guide.

We appreciate your patience as we worked to modify our services and spaces to provide a safe and welcoming return to the library this fall. The health of students, faculty and staff is our top priority. Please use the virtual Ask a Librarian service if you have any questions about current services or need help with your research. Library staff are excited to welcome you back!
