Libraries closed during 2016 Winter Recess

All libraries on Northwestern’s Evanston and Chicago campuses will observe the Winter Recess that was recently announced by President Schapiro. All library buildings will be closed, and all services will be suspended during this time (December 23 – January 2). Library online resources will continue to be available, and we encourage faculty and graduate students to take advantage of many services before the break. Members of Feinberg School of Medicine and Pritzker School of Law should look for a separate message about how resources will be handled at their institutions.

We urge faculty members and graduate students to submit 2017 Winter Quarter course requests as soon as possible.

The Libraries will reopen Tuesday, January 3, at 8 a.m. and resume normal services and hours. We welcome your questions and comments at and
