The Main Library building is available to current NEIU students for quiet study, by advanced reservation through our Click & Sit program, Monday-Friday, 10am - 4pm, and Saturday 10am - 2pm. View our complete NEIU Library Operating Plan for full details.
We've removed some furniture and computers and installed plexiglass dividers so that you can study and still maintain six feet of physical distance from others.
To request a quiet study space, please complete a Main Library Study Space Request Form to reserve a date and time. Only students currently registered for Summer 2021 classes may reserve a two-hour block for use of the library. Please note that there is a maximum limit of 33 students at a time. You'll need to submit a separate request form for each date/time you want access to a study space, and you will receive a confirmation for each accepted request.
Through our Grab & Go service, NEIU students, faculty, and staff are able to request physical materials from Ronald Williams Library and through limited I-Share and other interlibrary loan partners, which can be picked up at the entrance of the Library. Allow up to 3 days for NEIU items and 7-10 days for I-Share items to be processed and ready for pickup. Extended delivery times are the result of required book quarantine times. We are also offering Grab & Go services at CCICS and Grab & Go services at El Centro. For more information on how to request items, please see our Intro to Research Guide.
The outdoor book drop outside the Library's front door on the main campus is available for you to return books at any time. Items may be returned at CCICS or El Centro during building hours.
