Beginning on January 18, 2011, and in response to the Illinois Student Senate's December 2010 Resolution on Library Security, the University Library will limit access to its facilities during the hours of 12:00 a.m. - 6:00 a.m. to Urbana campus students, staff, and faculty. Library users will be required to present a valid i-Card for entry into the Undergraduate Library (12:00 a.m. - 6:00 a.m.), the Grainger Engineering Library Information Center (12:00 a.m. - 6:00 a.m.), and the Funk-ACES Library (12:00 a.m. - 3:00 a.m.). Any Library users who are not current members of the Urbana campus community will be asked to leave the Library at 12:00 a.m.
The University Library is committed to providing a secure environment
for its users, and to contributing to a safe environment for teaching, learning, and research on campus. The University Library
also remains committed to providing public access to its resources and facilities, and will continue to remain open to the public
during all other hours of operation.
If you have any questions about this change in policy, please contact Scott Walter, Associate University Librarian for Services and Associate Dean of Libraries.
