The library is available to alumni during all open hours, including exam periods when access is restricted to the IIT community. Alumni are also welcome to use the Library's reference services. A professional librarian can help answer general reference questions by phone at 312.906.5670, by email at or in person at the reference desk on the 9th floor. Please note that librarians cannot provide legal advice.

Most of the collection cannot be checked-out; however, if you do wish to borrow circulating books, you can become an Attorney Member for a yearly fee. Attorney Members can use the Library's document delivery program and check-out books, and they have access to the Library during restricted access periods. More information on the membership program is located on the Law Library website.
