The Reading Room provides a space for patrons to use Library materials housed in Oak Street High Density Storage. This is particularly useful when a patron needs to consult a large number of books, such as multi-volume sets. Unless materials are building-use only, patrons can take items home. Alternatively, they can request that items be set aside for them to use in the Reading Room.
Besides tables for research, the Reading Room has a public computer connected to a multi-function printer capable of scanning, copying, and printing.
For hours, location, and more information on requesting materials, please visit www.library.illinois.edu/cmservices/oakstreet_readingroom.html .
