The University of Chicago Library Catalog

The University of Chicago Library Catalog provides bibliographic information, library location and circulation status for books, journals, and other materials that have been processed by the Library since 1975, including items currently on order. Many items published before 1975 are also found in it. If needed items are not found in the Online Catalog, remember also to search card catalogs in the library, especially if the items were published before 1975.

The University of Chicago Library has developed a new catalog (Horizon) in partnership with Ameritech Library Services and Indiana University. The catalog will be part of a new integrated library system, still under development. For further information, periodically updated, see On the Library Horizon.

Horizon Upgrade: The Library has completed its move to a new version of the Horizon system. Call number indexes are still being built. They should be available again sometime the week of the 23rd. Please direct questions to
