The Math Library branch will be closing permanently on Friday, May 6th at 5pm.

  • Beginning Fall Semester 2016, Mathematics Course Reserves will be housed in and checked out from the Main Library Reserves (the Circulation Desk on the 1stfloor).
  • Many Math books have been and are being moved to the Main Library. 
  • Low-use materials will be moved to our Remote Storage facility.  Please see the library catalog for locations and availability. Daily runs to Remote Storage allow prompt retrieval of materials.


The Mathematics Library has a Reserved Reading section of textbooks and supplementary reading materials for Math, Statistics, and Math Education courses.

To view the list of available materials, search by course in the online catalog, using the course department and course number (ex - MTH234). A notebook of reserved reading lists in course number order for each department is also located on the Circulation Desk next to the e-token printer.

Loan periods for Reserved Reading materials vary: 1 hour/no overnight; 2 hour/no overnight; 2 hour; or 24 hours. A fine of $1.00 per hour is assessed for all overdue Reserved Reading materials.

Please use the Faculty Course Reserve Request form to submit a new reserve list.
