LOCATION AND PUBLIC HOURS
The library is located to the south of the Grand Staircase inside the museum’s Michigan Avenue entrance.
Materials are paged from the stacks until 4:00 p.m.
A reference librarian is available in the Reading Room during these times to assist you with locating resources in our closed-stack collection. We encourage you to review our discovery tools prior to visiting, and to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The Reading Room will close early, at 3:00, on Friday, March 6. The Reading Room will be closed for research on Monday, May 25 and, due to a collection move, we will also be closed for research from Wednesday, July 1 through Friday, July 31. Additional information on service changes is available here.
