Important SciFinder Access Changes
Client-based SciFinder support was discontinued July 1 by Chemical Abstracts Service. So, the "iconic" pink & blue SciFinder icon no longer connects to the database. SciFinder Web is now available. Full info on SciFinder web access .

About the Library
The Engineering, Mathematics & Computer Science Library (Engr/Math/CS Library) has the main collection for these subjects at UNH. It is located in Kingsbury Hall, Room S236.
Where is Kingsbury S236?
The Library is on the second floor in the middle portion of Kingsbury, with the entrance on the south side (one floor up from the Hatch mural on the first floor). We are open to the public as well as the UNH community. Please call 862-1196 or 862-1740 for more information about Library access.
As a branch of the UNH Library, we serve the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences and related UNH departments and research units, as well as others from the community with research and educational needs in the areas of computer science, mathematics and statistics, and chemical, civil, mechanical, and electrical and computer engineering. Materials for math education are found at both this library and Dimond Library.
The on-site collection includes approximately 26,000 books, 890 current periodical subscriptions, and thousands of bound journal volumes. Web-accessible and CD-ROM databases are available, while course reserve material for many Computer Science, Engineering and Mathematics classes is located here. Due to limited space, the Engr/Math/CS Library holds mainly recent and current materials. Older journals and historical materials on mathematics and engineering are located in other campus libraries or in the on-campus Library Storage Facility. To locate materials, check the UNH Library's online catalog, searchable by author, title, subject, and keyword.

Self-service scanning (black-and-white): The copier provides free scanning. Swipe a Cat's Cache card to activate the machine; no funds will be deducted. If you do not have a card, please ask staff to activate the scanner for you. Scanned pages (7-10 pages per file) are sent to email. Dedicated scanners for larger projects, including both print and microform scanning, are available at no charge at Dimond Library.
Copying (black-and-white): $0.10/page
Printing (black-and-white or color): price range: $0.10/page (8 ˝x11 black & white) up to $0.65/page (color 11x17).

Student ID cards are automatically set up for Cat's Cache.
Faculty/staff can start a Cat's Cache account with their UNH ID at the Dining/ID Office, Holloway Commons (862-1821).
Cat's Cache guest cards are available for anyone to purchase at each library. Cards have a pre-set value; they may be re-used.
Adding value/funds: UNH community members with Cat's Cache on ID cards may add value via Blackboard. Funds may be added to guest cards and ID's at an "Add-Value" (AMC) machine elsewhere on campus. The closest AMCs are in McConnell Hall 102 and Philbrook Dining Hall lobby.
