Science Library

Branch library in CN16

What is happening?


The Science Library is looking very different right now even beyond the pandemic seating: furniture, shelving, and books are disappearing. We are slowly but surely moving out of Cooper and, eventually, into the new Foundational Sciences Building which is slated to be completed and open for Fall Semester 2021. The Science Library will take up residence in the new building after almost 40 years in Cooper Science Complex. It is the end of an era but also the beginning of a new one.

We are relocating the physics, geography, environmental science, and geology books, journals, and other materials to Bracken Library because those disciplines will not be moving to the new building. Course reserves for those areas will also be moved to the main branch. However, we will continue to serve those departments through research consultation, reference appointments, and instruction.

The new Foundational Sciences Library will house materials related to biology, chemistry, anatomy, and physiology including anatomical models and course reserves. It will also have a full instructional computer classroom/computer lab for use.

**On Friday, 23 April 2021 at 6:00pm, the Science Library (CN16) will close forever.
From 26 April until Fall Semester 2021, all of the services and collections of the Science Library
will be contained within the
Health Library.**
