The newly-renovated Sciences Library, formerly the Chemistry Library, reopened at 9:00am on Monday, August 13.
Located in Chemistry C002, the Sciences Library houses books and other physical materials related to Astronomy, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, and Statistics. Jennifer Laherty (Head of Sciences and Librarian for Biology, Chemistry, Molecular & Cellular Biochemistry), Jian Liu (Librarian for Earth and Atmospheric Sciences), Amy Minix (Visiting Sciences Librarian), and Bob Noel (Librarian for Astronomy, Mathematics, Physics, and the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering) have their offices in the Sciences Library.
As always, expert research assistance is available to all library users – just ask at the front desk. You can also find materials placed on reserve by instructors at this desk.
What’s new since the renovation? Plenty! The Sciences Library now offers three group study rooms on a first-come, first-served basis. These rooms provide a table, chairs, and a large monitor with cables for a laptop connection. Two of these rooms accommodate four people and one is equipped for six. There is also a new 36-seat classroom, designed for collaborative teaching opportunities between the Libraries and academic units on campus. To inquire about using this space, contact Jennifer Laherty directly.
IU Bloomington graduate students have after-hours access to the library by using their Crimson Card, subject to building hours (generally 6:30am – 10:00pm). No circulation or research assistance services are available outside of library hours.
Please stop by for a visit and check out our beautifully renovated space!
