Research Visits

Following guidance from the City of Chicago, we are not requiring visitors to wear masks or show proof of vaccination.

We welcome anyone who is at least 14 years old (or in the ninth grade) to sign up for a Newberry reader’s card and begin using our unique collection.

As you prepare to visit, please browse our Core Collections and check our Online Catalog. Our librarians have also compiled numerous Research Guides, organized alphabetically by subject, to help researchers begin their exploration of the collections.

You may also wish to contact the Newberry’s Research Centers, which sponsor programs and research at the Newberry related to their subject. If your research goals are more long-term, you may wish to apply for a Fellowship.
