National Library Week

The DePaul University Library is committed to student success at DePaul!  Recent research shows that students who make use of library resources and services are more likely to stay in school and get better grades!1

In recognition of National Library Week, we’d like to highlight some of our numerous services specifically designed to enhance student’s lives and provide building blocks for academic success at DePaul.Librarians can Help Poster

  • We’re keeping it fresh!  We continually add new academic books to our shelves and expand our offering of electronic books to support the curriculum.
  • Our popular reading and graphic novel collections allow users to unwind from the rigors of more academic pursuits and indulge in reading for pleasure.
  • Students are encouraged to check out our growing collection of videogames and consoles.  Games are not only fun but support the curriculum of our Computing and Digital Media Department.
  • In addition to providing research help in person, by text, phone and email, librarians respond to a steady stream of instant messages every day.
  • Unique digital collections make DePaul and Vincentian historical documents more accessible to researchers on campus and around the world.
