The Joseph Schaffner Library is located on Northwestern University's Chicago Campus. Schaffner Library provides library and information services for the Kellogg School of Management, the School of Professional Studies, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and other Chicago-based members of the Northwestern community. Many services and programs are designed for part-time students.
The Library is named after Joseph Schaffner, a founder of Northwestern's first School of Commerce. In recognition of the Schaffner family's generosity in equipping the library and providing an endowment for books, it was named for Joseph Schaffner at Wieboldt Hall's 1927 dedication.
