Physics and Astronomy

This is the Physics and Astronomy Research Guide

Welcome to the Physics and Astronomy Research Guide

Print physics and astronomy materials are mainly located in the new Mathematical Sciences and Physics Library, the Libraries Annex, and the Library of Science and Medicine on the Busch campus. However, various materials may be found in additional locations. Major databases and most journals are available online, with access possible on-campus and off-campus (via NetID and password login) 24/7.

The Physics Library

The Physics Library in the Serin Physics building was closed as of June 30, 2015, due to ongoing moldy conditions. The Physics and Astronomy collection was treated for mold, and has been relocated to the new Mathematical Sciences and Physics Library in Hill Center and the Libraries Annex on Busch campus. If you need a book which is not currently available, please use EZBorrow or Interlibrary Loan. We will find a copy for you at another library.

If you have any questions about the physics books, please contact Laura Palumbo, at
