About the Science Library
The Science Library is located on the first floor of the Thad Cochran Research Center and is open to the entire campus community.
The space offers a comfortable environment with high-speed internet, computer workstations, a scanner, a printer, and assistive technology. A variety of seating is available to support all kinds of study. Three study rooms are also available on a first come first served basis and can be booked through the “Reserve a Space” feature. A floor map for the library is available here.
The library has a librarian, a full-time staff member, and several dedicated student workers to help users with library research and finding materials. Services available include reference, circulation, reserve, photocopy, and bibliographic instruction and assistance.
