Science and Engineering Library (SEL)

The library is inside the Lederle Graduate Research Center (LGRC) Low-Rise. Enter through Rm A273 (2nd floor South).  413.545.1370 

LGRC is at the intersection (roundabout) of North Pleasant Street and Governor’s Drive. The LGRC complex consists of the Low-Rise and a Tower, connected by a 2nd floor bridge over the central courtyard patio.

Entrance to Lederle Graduate Research Center (LGRC)
The main entrance to the LGRC Low-Rise is near the North Pleasant Street crosswalk (east side). Stairs lead from the ground floor lobby to the 2nd floor entrance of the Science and Engineering Library. There are also entrances to the Low-Rise on the west side of the building at the north end (closest to the roundabout) and from the central patio at the south end.

ADA button-activated, electrically powered doors are available from the central patio beneath the connecting bridge between the Low-Rise and the LGRC tower. There is a ramp from the south leading to the central patio for the Low-Rise door.

Elevators and Other Resources

An elevator is available at the north end of the LGRC Low-Rise that accesses the 2nd floor. Or, use the elevators in the LGRC Towers to access the 2nd floor connecting bridge to the Low-Rise. The entrance to the Science and Engineering Library is near that bridge.

An elevator within the library accesses 3 of the 4 floors. The basement floor is accessible by elevator with staff intervention. All four floors are accessible from a stairwell within the library.

Library staff at the Service Desk will gladly assist users who need help retrieving materials within the library.

The second floor (entrance level) at SEL has one wheel-chair accessible restroom each for women and men.

Several ADA and metered parking spaces are found between the LGRC courtyard and the West Experiment Station off of North Pleasant Street.
