Welcome to the DePaul University Library! Wherever you find DePaul, whether in Lincoln Park, the Loop, the suburbs, or online, you will find the library and its staff ready to support you. Even in a time of rapid change in libraries and higher education, the library remains at the heart of the academic enterprise, and provides you  - our students, faculty and staff - with the resources that allow you to discover new ideas, the expert assistance that helps you to meet your academic and lifelong learning goals, and the technology and space that allow you to read, write, collaborate, and create new knowledge.

The DePaul University Library is committed to exploring the new frontiers of information and knowledge in the digital age, as well as to the preservation and promotion of our cultural heritage. As members of the Center for Research Libraries, the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois, and the Catholic Research Resources Alliance, we provide our students, faculty, and staff with access to the resources and expertise that promote academic excellence in the classroom, and beyond.
