10 Things to Know About the Loyola Libraries



1. Study Spaces

There are tons of study spaces for groups and individuals in Cudahy and the Information Commons. Use our Room Reservation system to reserve a room. Cudahy and the IC are open 24/5 for much of the semester, so come early or stay late!


2. Get books, articles, and movies

Search for books, both print and electronic, or audiovisual material in the Pegasus Online Catalog or WorldCat Local. You can check out books for 28 days and you can check out movies for 1- 3 days.


3. Check out materials

Head to the Circulation Desk in the Cudahy Library. You can check out materials, pick up course reserves, and pick up interlibrary loan books there.


4. Interlibrary Loan

You can request material from libraries all over the country by using our Interlibrary Loan service.


5. Borrow media equipment

We sure do. Visit the Digital Media Lab on the 2nd floor of the IC to check out everything from headphones to digital cameras. You can also get help using the equipment from the friendly staff there. Check out their website here: http://www.luc.edu/digitalmedia/index.shtml


6. Print, copy, and scan

You can print, copy, and scan in the library. Just add money to your Loyola ID account and use your card to print and make copies. For information on costs and procedures, go here: http://www.luc.edu/digitalmedia/printingscanning/costs/

If you’re having trouble with your own devices, head to the ResNet office on the 2nd floor of the IC for help. The 2nd floor of the IC also has computers with special software packages on them, like the Adobe Creative Suite.


8. Get writing help

The Writing Center is located on the 2nd floor of the IC. You can book an appointment at their website. http://www.luc.edu/writing/
