Located in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood, the CCICS Library includes significant holdings in the social sciences and the humanities, particularly as they document, relate, and present the African and African-American experience. Collections include circulating items, selected monographs on reserve, reference and periodical literature.

The Library is located on the sixth and seventh floors of the Carruthers Center for Inner City Studies at 700 East Oakwood Boulevard in Chicago.
