About the Library

Welcome to The Chicago School University Library!

Welcome to The Chicago School University Library! 

As part of the TCSPP community, the Library supports the institution's commitment to research and teaching.  Research resources typically consist of books from academic publishers and articles from scholarly journals.  Depending on your topic, you may need additional types of sources such as data and statistics, primary sources, articles from trade journals, music, and videos.  All of these types of sources can be found in the Libraries and on the Libraries' website.  We can help you source items that might not be immediately available as full text.  While all TCSPP campuses share electronic materials, each has different print materials.  Visit your campus library’s website for specific information on print materials.  Also- Library staff are available to help guide research through individual consultations, instruction and more.
