Law Library Access During COVID-19

Given Governor Pritzker’s “stay at home” order, the D'Angelo Law Library will be closed until further notice. However, the Library is still providing online services while our building is closed to help with your research, teaching, and learning.

We will continue to offer expert online reference help and research consultations to University of Chicago faculty, students, and staff. We are also working on other service innovations to support the University of Chicago community with the move to online coursework.

Extended Due Dates and Suspended Fines for Physical Materials

  • All overdue fines suspended: The Library is temporarily suspending all overdue fines as part of our ongoing response to the coronavirus. All Library items, including Interlibrary Loan, reserve material, and recalled items will not be charged overdue fines when returned after the Library reopens.
  • Do not return items by mail at this time. We do not know what will happen to packages sent to the Library at this time.
  • For University of Chicago faculty: Items currently checked out for a full year will be due May 1, 2021.
  • For University of Chicago students, staff, and most other borrowers: Items currently checked out for the entire quarter will be due October 2, 2020.
  • Interlibrary Loan items currently checked out with due dates between March 10, 2020, and June 14, 2020, will now be due June 15, 2020.
