POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Current UIC faculty and graduate students are eligible to apply
for a research carrel. Due to the limited number of carrels available,
priority is given to faculty members and graduate students actively
involved in research requiring extensive use of materials in Daley Library.
Applications are available at the Daley Library Circulation Desk, in pdf form
online, or users may submit an application directly.
The application should include a description of your current research. Return
completed applications to the Circulation Desk. Bookstacks supervisory
staff will contact you via e-mail or telephone to set up an appointment
for key pickup.
Assignments are made in the order received. Due to demand, more
than one person may be assigned to a carrel. Carrels are assigned until
the end of the spring semester of each academic year. The carrel key
must be returned and personal belongings removed by the end of the finals
week of the spring semester. Courtesy notices are sent as reminders.
If you get a notice for your research carrel prematurely, contact the
Bookstacks office, (312) 996-6794. Carrel patrons desiring the use of
a carrel for the summer session or for the following semesters may reapply
at that time.
Failure to return
a key will result in charges for a lost key or rekeying of the lock($25.00),
and a non-refundable processing fee ($25.00). Failure to remove personal
belongings from carrel at the end of the assigned term will result in
charges of $25.00.
Carrels are accessible only during hours that third and fourth floors
the library are open. Hours are posted at the entrance to the library
at the beginning of each semester and at http://www.uic.edu/depts/lib/admin/services/schedules.
Patrons inadvertently locked in the building should call campus police
at x6-2830 for assistance.
A carrel register is located at the library attendant's desks at
the east and west door of the Library. Carrel patrons must sign this
sheet each day that they use their carrels; once during any day of use
is sufficient. Carrel keys will be recalled if the carrel is used fewer
than fifteen times during the semester.
Uncharged library materials must not be left in the carrels; such
materials will be returned to the stacks. Carrel privileges will be
revoked if uncharged library materials are found in the carrel.
If you have any
questions please contact, Bookstacks Office at 996-6794 or stop by the
