Access to all floors of the John T. Richardson Library and to the Loop Library for browsing and self-service of all materials is now open during service hours. Pickup service for requested DePaul and I-Share materials continues to be available at both library locations during posted hours of operation.
You may request books in advance and have them waiting for you to pick up. Once requested, please wait until you receive an email alert letting you know that the books are available. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to pull titles from the shelves on the same day requested.
This service is available to current DePaul students, faculty, staff, alumni, and I-share patrons wanting to request physical materials held by DePaul for pickup at either the John T. Richardson Library or Loop Library.
Materials requested from one library for delivery to the other can take a few days depending on the day of the week the request was made. Materials requested from other I-Share libraries for delivery to DePaul will typically take 5-7 business days to arrive.
In alignment with updated mask guidance issued by the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH), DePaul is requiring everyone on campus—regardless of vaccination status—to wear a face mask indoors. Thank you for doing your part to Take Care DePaul by practicing healthy behaviors that will promote safety on campus.
