The Science and Engineering Library provides information and research help in these fields:
|• Agricultural sciences||• Food science|
|• Astronomy||• Geosciences|
|• Biochemistry||• Mathematics and statistics|
|• Biology (except medicine and health)||• Microbiology|
|• Chemistry||• Nursing
|• Computer science||• Physics|

Though SEL is the primary location for materials supporting engineering and science there are two main exceptions:
- Most medicine- and health-related materials are in the W.E.B. Du Bois Library, as is the liaison librarian for Nursing, Beth Lang.
- Agriculture-related materials are also split between Du Bois and SEL. Naka Ishii and Madeleine Charney share liaison responsibilities.
Technology and space to work
SEL has many PCs available for public use, plus wireless access to the campus network; color and b&w printers and copiers, and a scanner. Eight group study rooms on the entry level floor each with a computer and white boards, many large and small tables for group or solo work scattered throughout the library create a good place to work.
Reference librarians, hard-copy book and journal circulation, instruction in library use, and help with research. Contact Thea Atwood, Paulina Borrego, Naka Ishii, Ellen Lutz, or Maxine Schmidt to make an appointment for classroom library instruction or individualized research help, including patent research.
