Library Online Services

The library will be offering online only services through June 7th.  Access to online library resources will be available to Midwestern University users and library staff will be available to answer questions via our chat service, provide online instruction for classes, and conduct virtual reference appointments.  ILLiad requests are being processed, but expect longer than usual fill times and limited availability of print books and older journal articles.  The physical library buildings will be closed and print books and other physical materials will not be available for check-out.

2020 Graduates

2020 graduates are being cleared from the library for graduation. We are waiving your fines and not requiring the return of any books currently checked out to you. This should relieve any library clearance concerns before your graduation date. Of course, if you wanted the option to return the books via mail, we would welcome them back: Mailing addresses:
