Chicago available to faculty from both institutions. It includes access
and borrowing privileges at all University of Chicago libraries: Harper,
Regenstein, Social Service Administration (SSA), Law, Crerar, Chemistry,
Eckhart, and Yerkes.
Tenured, tenure-track, and clinical faculty in the professorial ranks
are eligible to participate. Faculty authorization to others does not
apply. Faculty with other types of appointment may be eligible to use
the Crerar Access or Crerar Borrower cards kept at the Daley Library
Reserve Desk. Users must present a valid i-Card to charge out Crerar
cards. The loan period for these cards is three days. The overdue fine
is $5.00 per day.
Eligible UIC faculty may apply at the Richard J. Daley Library Circulation
Desk, the Access Services Desk in the Library of the Health Sciences,
or via e-mail. The authorizing
identification card can be picked up at the desk you visited or mailed
to you. This card, along with the UIC i-card, should be presented to
staff in the Privileges Office in the Regenstein Library at the University
of Chicago main campus located at 1100 East 57th Street. The hours of
the Privileges Office are 8:30am-7:00pm, Mon-Thu; 8:30am-5:00pm, Fri;
