University Library

What is Special Collections and Archives, anyway?

Our department holds books, documents, and other items that are either very old, fragile, rare, or important to DePaul's history.  Many of these resources are irreplaceable, so our policies and procedures are different from the rest of the DePaul Library.

Use the menu on the left to learn more about finding and using the unique resources in
Special Collections & Archives!


Where You'll Find Us

We have unique resources you won't find in other places in the library.  Since these items don't circulate, come use them in our beautiful and quiet reading room. 

You'll find us at:
John T. Richardson Library, Suite 314
2350 N Kenmore. Ave.
Chicago, IL 60614
