Physical Collection: The library maintains and circulates a collection of books, journals, atlases, observatory publications, and historical documents in astronomy, mathematics, physics, science, and technology. These materials may be checked out for an indefinite period of time, but after two weeks, if another patron wishes to see the material, we will recall it. We do not share circulation information with staff.

Physical Space: The library provides areas for quiet study and for collaborative meetings. We also have a public printer, scanner, computer, and whiteboard.
