The library's physics collection dates back to the late ninteenth century but expands in the early twentieth century. We now actively collect materials in all areas of physics, with a large number of print and online books and journals supplemented by other online resources.
- CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics - online version in the library only, except for members of the ChemTK community, who have remote access when authenticated to the ChemTK network.
Books about physics are on the fifth floor, shelves 5B 034-5C 039, call (location) numbers QC1-999.
