Using the University of Chicago Library

Access to the University of Chicago Library's licensed resources is restricted to current students, faculty, and staff with University of Chicago computing accounts (CNet ID) and to users conducting research within Library buildings.

Those who are no longer enrolled in classes will cease to have access to most Library-licensed resources. See below for information on accessing licensed resources through your local public, university, and hospital libraries.

Using Libraries Near You

Local public libraries can provide access to the resources you need. Once you have established a user account with your local public library, it may be possible to remotely access electronic resources licensed by your library, in addition to checking out print books and using reference materials in the library. It may also be possible to use your public library's Interlibrary Loan service to request materials that are not held in your library's collections. Ask at your library for more information.

University libraries and hospital libraries in your area might also be available to you. Access policies vary from institution to institution, but public universities are often mandated to make their buildings and use of their collections within their buildings available to the general public. So, even if you are not affiliated with a university or hospital in your area, you may still be able to visit its libraries to use print and online materials. Contact your local universities and hospitals to find out about access policies.
