Open House  

The University Library has two great locations where you can study, learn, collaborate, and create. Come visit during our Open House hours to:

  • Try a Virtual Reality headset, get your own green screen portrait, and check out the podcasting equipment in the Digital Scholarship Commons in McHenry Library 
  • Explore activist posters, student-created comics, a book made out of rat skin, and a four thousand year old cuneiform tablet in Special Collections & Archives in McHenry Library 

  • See a 3D printer in action, customize a laser-cut keychain, and build a fidget toy at the Digital Scholarship Innovation Studio in the Science & Engineering Library



Explore the McHenry Library and Science & Engineering Library during Welcome Week to get to know our student spaces including flexible study spaces, reservable study rooms, scenic forest reading porches, quiet study areas, the Global Village Cafe, a yoga/meditation space, and more.
