Borrowing materials

Many items in the Art Library circulate using the Libraries' loan periods and policies. A self-checkout station is located at the Art Library service desk.

Materials that do not circulate include:

These materials can be viewed on-site or scanned and copied. Additionally, there is a Bookeye scanner in Special Collections next door, which can be used for scanning large and fragile books. Note: During Fall 2020, Deering Library will be closed. If you need access to non-circulating materials from the Art Library, please contact artlibrary@northwestern.edu.

Reproductions and copies

Visitors can make copies using our equipment for scanning, electronic delivery and reproduction: a high resolution color scanner, two flatbed scanners, color and black- and-white printers and color and black-and-white photocopiers, which also allow for scanning and electronic delivery.
