Facilities: Science Library

sci-libraryThe Gilbert Fowler White Science Library opened in September 2002 with collections and resources for the study of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics Departments. The bright and airy decor is pleasing to many users who enjoy working in copious natural and indoor lighting. High tech and classic features blend in the simple lines and warm tone of furniture and carrels made by Thomas Moser Cabinetmakers. Books, films and older print journals are housed in standard and compact shelving spread over two floors. The Library has over 60 seats available to the public who have both wireless and hard-wired networking options for their laptops. Two networked seminar rooms are available for class meetings and group study.

Almost all users prefer accessing current research journals electronically, for those who enjoy the pleasure of print, the library’s reading room provides a comfortable setting for browsing many science magazines of broad import. Students work on assignments using scientific academic software installed on six PCs with high-speed network printing capability. A scanner is also available for public use.

The Science Library is staffed by a science librarian and friendly library assistants eager to help with course or thesis research. Visit the Science Library site, to learn about the numerous research tools available!
