The University Library is often thought of as the campus living room. This is where you can find a quiet corner to study or space for classmates to discuss and work together. It's also where you - along with faculty and alumni - find study areas surrounded by art. The community is welcome here, too.
The resources of the Library are extensive, including membership in the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois. This gives you access to the references and databases of 82 libraries across the state. If you're new to accessing books or information, one of our librarians will be there to guide you. You can even send a query online.
