The Reading Room is currently closed due to health and wellness concerns related to COVID-19. We look forward to hosting in-person researchers again, as soon as it is advisable.
Please visit our Digital Library to see some of our unique materials that have been digitized and are available remotely: http://libservices.org/contentdm/index.php
Yes! Special Collections and Archives reference service is available at https://libguides.depaul.edu/askspca and will be monitored and answered Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 pm (the standard hours for SPCA reference).
Some questions may be deferred until staff have access to unique materials on-site.
Special Collections and Archives librarians are in contact with faculty who previously scheduled spring term SPCA instruction, and have offered a variety of options, depending on the nature of the resources to be used.
Options include individual research consultations, embedding a librarian/archivist in the D2L course, and pre-recorded Zoom sessions on finding and using rare books and primary sources online, tailored to each course. Please contact Morgen MacIntosh Hodgetts for more information.
