Phase 1 of the Library renovation is just about complete and our new space on the third floor of the SRC is now open. The second floor is now closed in preparation for our lower level renovation–you now enter the Library on the third floor of the SRC building where the SRC connectes with the BIC.
Our upper level is a beautiful new space with a variety of workspaces available to students. Our book collection has now been returned from the OCC as well, so can just grab what you need from the shelves. Our Reference, Circulation, and Print Services desks are also fully functioning in our new space; we are ready and able to help you with all of your research needs.
So come check out our new space today!

The Library Annex location in OCC 135 is now permanently closed! Most of the library general collection has been returned to its permanent location on the upper level of the main Library, which will reopen Friday, April 26th. The remaining books from the general collection may be unavailable for short periods next week while they are in transit, but library staff will pull any requested books that are available. If you need a book from the General Collection, contact the Reference Desk at 630-942-3364 to find out if it’s on the shelf or in transit. If what you need isn’t available, they can also help you find alternate materials.
Thank you for your patience as we relocate. We’re excited to be moving into our lovely new space!

Phase 1 of the library renovation is nearing completion, and we are excited to announce that we anticipate opening the new upper level of the library on Friday, April 26th. The lower level will close at the end of the day on Thursday, April 25th, and we will reopen in the new space the next morning. The new entrance will be on the 3rd floor of the SRC on the landing at the top of the south side glass wall staircase where the BIC and SRC meet.
We are gearing up to move the general collection from OCC back to its home on main campus. Movers will begin packing and moving books from OCC on April 10th and are planning to be finished with all the collection moves by April 26th. We are working with the movers to keep the books as accessible as possible during the move and anticipate that no books should be unavailable for more than two days. Please plan ahead for items you may need to check out.
Collections from the lower level that will be moving to the upper level (including, Reference, Periodicals, Newspapers, Popular DVDs and VHS tapes, New Books, Juvenile, Philanthropy Collection, Graphic Novels and Trade Paperbacks) may also unavailable for short times as they are packed and moved. Staff at the Reference desk will be able to assist you and your students in locating materials during the move. Most Reserve materials will be available immediately and all Reserve materials should be available with very short wait times.
Thank you for your patience so far this semester and with the coming move. We are doing our best to make the transition to the new space as seamless as possible but appreciate your understanding if operations aren’t always as smooth as usual.
