Library news

The Ryerson and Burnham Libraries will be closed on Friday, September 22.

Please see Hours and Location for more details.


The Libraries are excited to announce our new library catalog, which launched on Monday, June 26.

Primo provides simple, one-stop searching for both physical and electronic library materials so that you can retrive books and electronic journal articles in the same search. This also will allow us to accept requests for general collection library materials digitally rather than through filling in paging slips.
 Some processes in our reading room have changed:
  • Rather than completing paper request slips for General Collection materials in our onsite stacks, please use the public computer terminals to place requests.
  • See the staff at the Reference Desk for requesting Special Collections materials, Restricted materials, and Ryerson & Burnham Archives.
  • See the staff at the Circulation Desk for requesting Offsite-NU materials and for recalling materials that have been checked out.
Please visit the help page or any of the public desks in the reading room with questions on the new catalog or email to let us know what you think!
