Information commons/library

The Information Commons (IC) opened in January 2011, completing Phase I of the Insieme per il futuro campaign to renovate the JFRC. The IC is a model of energy efficiency and sustainable development, maximizing the use of energy consumed and minimizing the impact on the environment, and is a beautiful work of architecture. This facility is one of the most technologically advanced libraries in Rome, an appropriate home for one of the largest collection of English books in the city. 

Students will find access to WiFi, computers, and study rooms equipped with state-of-the-art technology. 

The Library is part of the IC. Students will find stacks of books on the upper level of the IC. These stacks include an excellent travel section. Inter-library loans are also possible from Loyola University Chicago's library, and visiting students have access to Loyola Chicago's online library resources.
