The Newberry Library offers two undergraduate programs:

Associated Colleges of the Midwest/Newberry Program (ACM)
Newberry Library Undergraduate Seminar (NLUS)

The Newberry’s undergraduate programs offer students the rare opportunity to pursue interdisciplinary inquiry and intensive research in primary sources at one of the world’s leading research libraries. Students are considered fellows at the Newberry. As part of the Newberry’s scholarly research community, students are assigned research carrels. Students receive the same extended access hours to the Newberry that fellows and staff enjoy, and they are encouraged to consult and collaborate with Newberry scholars and staff.
