The Chicago Underground Library (CUL) is a collection focusing on material produced by small presses or independent publishers in the Chicago area, designed to house material often excluded from the public library system. The collection includes zines, comics, books, chapbooks, newsletters, art books, magazines and pamphlets, with an emphasis on inclusivity and a disregard for formats, genres and subcultures.


The Chicago Underground Library was founded in February 2006 by Nell Taylor and Emerson Dameron.


In May 2006, CUL announced its intention to temporarily store its collection at MoJoe's House of Soul, a coffeehouse in the Logan Square neighborhood. Once it has moved in, it plans to make the collection available for public viewing and host events at this location.
