The University of Illinois-Chicago is looking to be the site of Barack Obama’s future presidential library and museum.

The school is waiting for the White House to announce its intention to build a museum before offering any specific proposals; but school officials have already scouted out at least five sites on campus that, they say, could accommodate the new museum.

One of them is alongside the Richard J. Daley library, next to Jane Addams Hull House museum.

But the University of Chicago, where Obama taught, and the University of Hawaii, where he studied, also want to host the museum; so does Chicago State University.
