The library offers two types of group library instruction: library research classes, which provide in-depth information on how to use a variety of library resources (approximately 1 hour), and walking tours, which provide basic information on the different areas of the library (approximately 30 minutes). Both can be customized to focus on specific subject areas (e.g., nursing or ESL). If you would like to schedule a library research class or walking tour, please contact Leone McDermott at 773-907-4877 or Please provide at least two alternate dates and times for each research class or walking tour and one week’s advance notice for scheduling and preparation.
