Science & Engineering Library

 HOURS for August 28, 2016:  Now Closed


Please excuse our mess! The Science Library and Shaver Engineering Libraries are excited to be merging into a single, integrated Science & Engineering Library. This process should be complete by the end of June, but in the meantime you may encounter many book carts on the third and fourth floors, workers who are integrating the two collections and bringing furniture into the library, shifting collections, etc. If you need assistance locating an item during this process or after it is complete, please ask for assistance at the circulation desk on the second floor. You can also reach the desk at 257-0121. We apologize for any inconvenience that this transition causes.
