An online catalog of the library's holdings (books and periodicals), including circulation information, is accessible campus-wide. Recent acquisitions are displayed on the "New Books" shelf outside A-208. A list of new holdings is distributed bimonthly to all personnel. Staff members and fellows are invited to propose new books for acquisition; a recommendation form is available online.


The library currently subscribes to more than 300 scientific journals and magazines and provides online access to the backfiles of many more.  The library also holds an extensive print collection of older journals going back to the 19th Century.  Current print issues are shelved in the Reading Room and in the Astronomy Library.  Older volumes are shelved in the bound periodicals stacks on the 3rd floor.  A complete list of serials holdings is also available online, along with links to numerous electronic journals. Online access is available campus-wide. For off-site access instructions, please contact the librarian.

Personal e-mail alerts of new journal articles may be set up using Web of Science and GeoRef. Citations matching your research interests are automatically delivered to you each week. For assistance in setting up your alerts, see Shaun Hardy.
