Changes to Library Service Hours Beginning Fall 2017

Beginning Fall Quarter 2017, the DePaul University Library will reduce its service hours at both the John T. Richardson Library (Lincoln Park Campus) and the Loop Library (Loop Campus).

The regular schedule at the John T. Richardson Library will be:

Monday through Thursday            7:30 a.m. to 12:00 a.m.

Friday                                                         7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Saturday                                                   10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Sunday                                                       10:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m.

The regular schedule at the Loop Library will be:

Monday through Thursday            9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Friday                                                         9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Saturday                                                   10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Sunday                                                       12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m.

The Richardson Library will remain open 24/7 during parts of Study Week and Finals Week during the Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarters. Please visit the Library Hours page for current library hours and any changes to the regular schedule.

This modest reduction in service hours and other cost-cutting measures affecting library service are the result of the necessary re-alignment of the library budget required by the parameters of the university’s FY18 budget.

The library continues to provide 24/7 access to digital content, including full-text articles in over 60,000 electronic journals, 275,000 e-books and 115,000 digital media titles including streaming audio and video. We also offer targeted assistance in academic disciplines through research guides and online tutorials. The Ask-a-Librarian service is available during scheduled hours, and librarians are available for research consultations and instruction, by appointment.

If you have any questions regarding these changes to the library’s service hours, please contact Scott Walter, University Librarian.
