Spring Hours

Welcome Back, Flyers!! Here are our hours for the Spring Semester.

Please remember to sign your Flyer Promise and wear your mask correctly when visiting us at the library.

We’ll keep you safe, and you keep us safe. 🙂

And your library will be closed on January 17th and 18th in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Need a Quiet Place to Study?

Then the library has you covered! But you need to book a study room?

….About that.

Due to the current pandemic, our study rooms have been closed since they are too small to be able to safely physically distance from one another.

But don’t fret! You can still book larger rooms on campus for your group study needs. Click on this link and select “Fall2020 Study Rooms” to get started!

Good luck on your finals, Flyers!

Turkey-lurkey doo

Hello, Flyers! Here are our hours for the week of Thanksgiving! We hope you have a relaxing holiday away from the stress of classes.

eat that turkey then take a nap

Your Lewis Library’s hours will also be changing after the Thanksgiving holiday. We will still be open for you if you’d like to have a quiet place to study, or need to utilize our printers.

I wish turkey only cost a nickel.

Research help will still be available via chat or by phone. You can also still make an appointment for research assistance with one of our research librarian too.

Closed for Labor Day

Your Lewis University Library will be closed Sunday, September 6th and Monday, September 7th in honor of the Labor Day holiday. We will reopen at 7:30am on Tuesday, September 8th.

“Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.” (Dept of Labor)

For more information on why we celebrate Labor Day, check out this website from the Department of Labor:

I-Share’s Back ALRIGHT!

We’re gonna bring the flavor show you how

You can now borrow from over 91 libraries in Illinois. All you have to do is login to I-Share with your Lewis credentials (same as MyLewis).

Click on “All I-Share Libraries” and search for your item. Click on the title of your item, and scroll down to the “How to Get It” section.

You will see all of the institutions that have that item. Click on the arrow to the right of I-Share and a form will appear.

Verify that the information is correct and click on “Send Request.” That’s it! Your request has been submitted. If you want to check on the status of your request, renew your loans, or check on fines/fees, etc. you can click on your name in the upper right corner of the screen and select “My Library Card.”

We don’t recommend requesting textbooks via I-Share, as many textbooks are not lend-able by other institutions, and loan periods are usually only one month tops with no renewals.

Textbooks can be located and purchased at the Lewis University Bookstore.

I need Technical Support…what do I do!?

Don’t worry, I’ve sent an email.

IT help will not be available in the library this semester, but don’t fret! You can still get their help by follow these steps.
