Loyola University Chicago Libraries

One Loyola Library

An informational guide for the One Loyola Library initiative

What is One Loyola Library?

The One Loyola Library task force was formed in March 2021 following the Provost's directive to unify all Loyola Libraries into a One Loyola Library system. The stated goal of this unification is to build a library structure that is more nimble; aware of the unique needs of each individual campus; and responsive to the faculty, students, and staff of today and tomorrow. The task force is chaired jointly by the directors of the Loyola University Libraries, the Health Sciences Library, and the Law Library. The membership is comprised of representatives from every Loyola school (except for the School of Environmental Sustainability and the School of Continuing & Professional Studies) and three librarians from each of the three libraries. 

We'd love your help!

Would you like to contribute to the exciting formation of the One Loyola Library? Please volunteer to participate in a focus group. We would love to hear as many diverse Loyola perspectives as possible. 

One Loyola Library Task Force - Our Charge

The teaching, learning, research, and work of Loyola University Chicago (LUC) is supported by a Health Sciences Library on the Maywood Campus; a Law Library on the Water Tower Campus; and University Libraries which includes Cudahy Library, the Loyola Information Commons, and the Library Storage Facility on the Lake Shore Campus, Lewis Library on the Water Tower Campus, and the Information Commons at the John Felice Rome Center.  

In the spirit of One Loyola, and with an eye toward collaborative action in building a library structure that is nimble, aware of the unique needs of each individual campus, and responsive to today’s and tomorrow’s faculty, students, and staff, the Provost has asked that a task force be formed and comprised of key stakeholders representing the three LUC campuses. Task force members will work together to identify need, solicit feedback, and describe current opportunities and challenges for building a 21st-century library. The work will culminate in recommendations and a vision for a Loyola University Chicago Library System.
