Alumni visitors have borrowing privileges for Rebecca Crown Library materials.  Alumni must present a current state I.D. or driver's license, and a valid Reaching Across Illinois Library System (RAILS) or Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI) library card for registration.  The Rebecca Crown Library also welcomes community members from RAILS and CARLI, ELS students, Trinity High School students, Fenwick High School students and persons with Catholic affiliations.  

Loan Periods

Books can be checked out for eight weeks. Books may be renewed at the circulation desk or by calling 708-524-6876.  Periodicals are non-circulating. Lost books will be charged the cost of replacement.

Computer Access

Guest computers are available on the lower level of the Rebecca Crown Library to search online or to access the library's subscription databases while you are on campus only.  Library Guest Accounts are not currently available, so guest users are not able to use the library computers at this time.  Guest users and Alumni must obtain a Library Guest Account at the Welcome and Information Desk (WID) on the lower level of the Library or at the Support Center on the lower level of Lewis when they are available.  More information about how to obtain guest access is available on the University Support Center website
