​​​The DePaul University Library will resume its reservation services for current students, faculty and staff starting Monday, Feb. 1. Access will include the second floor of the John T. Richardson Library, which 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. You can learn more and reserve up to three hours per day, Monday - Thursday from 11 a.m.- 5 p.m., through the library's new reservation system. This service is intended for independent study and computer use. 

To protect the health and safety of yourself and others, several library policies have been modified. Masks are required and visitors should sanitize their 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 at the Richardson Library have been expanded to Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Services also 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.

Library staff appreciate your patience with the modified services and spaces this year. The health of students, faculty and staff remains a top priority. Please use the virtual Ask a Librarian service if you have any questions about current services or need help with your research.
