  • Welcome to the Rebecca Crown Library



    The Crown Library is an integral part of the culture and community of Dominican University. Its mission is in harmony with the Dominican University Mission: to pursue truth, give compassionate service, and contribute to a more just and humane world.  The mission of the Rebecca Crown Library mandates the academic support of students, faculty, and staff for resources and services. In addition to supplying print and electronic materials, services such as reference, circulation, interlibrary loan and instruction provide means through which the Dominican University Mission may be realized.

    The library extended hours of operation in 2006 and is now open from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. everyday of the week.  Reference services are available until 10:30 p.m. daily. 

    A renovation of the building completed in 2002 provided additional computer workstations and study spaces with wired and wireless network connections, high-density shelving for print collections, and a computer classroom for library instruction.

    The library houses a collection of over 300,000 volumes and subscribes to more than 18,000 journals, many of which are available electronically through over 120 databases. The library is a partial depository for U.S. government publications and maintains special collections and archival materials. The Media Center houses the library's collection of audio visual materials and viewing facilities.

    The library is a member of several consortia, cooperative projects, and organizations, including the Consortia of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois, LIBRAS, the Federal Depository Library Program, and the Metropolitan Library System. By participating in these programs the library is able to provide access through inter-library loan to over nine million unique titles.
