About Us

The Chemistry Library supports research in analytical, inorganic, organic, organometallic, and physical chemistry, as well as materials science and related disciplines. It holds the chemistry core curriculum journal collection, relevant monographs, symposia, and series in all fields of chemistry. Chemistry instructional materials, including course reserves, are also available.

Despite high levels of instructional and research activity, the Chemistry Library has the reputation of being one of the few quiet places on campus in which to study. This is perhaps due to the tucked-away spaces on the quiet second floor, with its view of the courtyard, and the downstairs area, which may be in use for quiet study or group work at any given time.
