COVID-19 Update: Campus and library access remains restricted.

The library is currently open to all members of the LMU community with campus access. 

  • LMU community members with campus access may use the collections, study tables, computers and printers on a drop-in basis. Reservations are required for study rooms. 
  • Loyola Law School students do not currently have automatic campus access - please contact Kathryn Ryan so that we can help request campus access before your visit (allow 3 business days for processing).

Due to county health protocol, please wear a mask at all times while in the library. 

Go to our "Online Library Resources and Updates" page to learn how to access library resources online and get virtual support with your research. LMU students, faculty, and staff can also request physical books for pickup at the library or mail within the United States.
