Introducing the Library's New Website

On June 1, the Library unveiled the latest version of our website at  The website has a new look and organization that will simplify locating Library resources and information.  We've added new features, including more about our services to faculty and students.  Note that some resources now have new locations.  For example, our hours, staff list, and maps are under "Access."  Electronic databases and journals can be found in the "E-Resources" section.  The online version of the Daily Bulletin is now under "Services". 

Please use our feedback form to let us know if you have any questions or problems, or contact our Electronic Resources Librarian, Debbie Ginsberg, at

I-Share Upgrade Begins June 6

The library’s catalog will be upgraded in the month of June. Beginning June 6, the ability to request books through the I-Share catalog will be unavailable. We expect the request function to be unavailable for a minimum of 3 weeks. Once the upgrade has been completed, the request function will be restored. 

We expect most requests made before June 6 to be processed and arrive on time. Any requested items that have not arrived by June 15 will likely expire and will need to be re-requested after the upgrade is completed. 

Normally, Downtown Campus Students can go directly to other I-Share libraries and check out books with an IIT ID. Since all I-Share libraries' catalogs are being upgraded at the same time, other local I-Share libraries will not be able to handle requests from outside students. During the upgrade, IIT students will not be able to check out books at other I-Share libraries. 

If you have questions about your pending requests, please ask at the Circulation Desk.

Library Policy for Graduating Students

If you are graduating this semester, you need to turn in your books and pay all your fines by May 21, 2006, or your academic record may be blocked. 

Special privileges can be arranged for recent graduates who need to use the Library to find a job. Please contact Eric Neagle, Circulation Manager, (312) 906-5662 or

General Library Policies

Please be courteous and respect your fellow students by keeping your voices down and your study areas clean. Food should remain outside the library. If you must bring a cell phone, please turn it off or set the ringer to vibrate, and remember to take the phone outside the library before you start your conversation. Drinks may be brought into the library, provided that you dispose of the container in the appropriate recycling bin when you are finished. No food or drinks of any kind are allowed in the computer labs. You can find more library policies online:

The Library staff wishes to remind all students that the Library is open to the public, and students should guard against petty thefts by keeping their laptops and other valuables close at all times.

Featured Resource: Historical Statistics of the United States

Historical statistics of the United States. Data from the Historical Statistics of the United States is available in HTML, PDF, and Excel. Information is arranged according to five broad topics: population, work and welfare, economic performance, economic sectors and governance and international relations. These topics are broken down further into sub-topics. Much of the statistical information is accompanied by essays which provide details about the data, sources and historical trends for the topic. This database can be accessed on the Downtown Campus and is available through remote access to faculty, students and staff.
