University Library hours and services for spring 2021 semester

Dear students, faculty and staff,

Welcome to the spring 2021 semester! I would like to remind you of some of the many resources and services the UIC University Library offers to support your research, teaching and patient care.

Library faculty liaisons at each of our locations—the Richard J. Daley Library and the Libraries of the Health Sciences in Chicago, Peoria, Rockford and Urbana—offer subject-area expertise and are available to partner with faculty, students and clinicians within each of the UIC colleges. Services include individualized research consultations, course-integrated instruction and acquisition of relevant library resources. To contact your liaison, visit

Library hours for the spring 2021 semester vary for each building and are subject to change pending revised guidance from UIC and State of Illinois health and safety officials. Visit the Library website at for the most up-to-date information and hours for each building.

All Library buildings will be closed Jan. 18, 2021 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
