Welcome to the transition website for the Physics Library!

The active physics collection and the Physics Librarian are now located in the new Terman Engineering Library. Please use the links to the left to access information about services, hours of operation, course reserves for Physics and Engineering, book renewals and visitor information.

NOTE: The University Libraries webspace is transitioning to a new look. Some links will take you to webpages featuring the new look and other links will take you to the older layout. The information is still there, just presented a little differently. Hope you will find the new design easy to use! You can always send feedback via the "Ask Us" link at the top of each library webpage.

In June 2010, the Physics Library in the Russell H. Varian Laboratory of Physics closed. During the summer months, the active physics collection and the Physics Librarian relocated into the new Engineering Library space in the Science and Engineering Quad. The new Frederick Emmons Terman Engineering Library opened in August 2010 housing both the engineering and physics collections. The Physics Library opened in Varian when the building opened in 1964. Prior to its Varian location, the Physics Library was located in Building 380.
