New Science & Engineering Library Opens!

The Libraries is pleased to announce the opening of the new Science & Engineering Library at Columbia University. The new library, located in the Northwest Corner Building, offers research support for the fields of chemistry, biology, physics, astronomy, and psychology, as well as providing a collaborative environment supporting rapidly expanding interdisciplinary science and engineering research. We welcome the University community to stop by the new library, enjoy the space and speak to the staff.

The library features seating and study spaces for students and researchers with spectacular views of the Columbia campus and Morningside Heights. Beginning in February 2011, the library will offer tours on Fridays.


 A primary feature of the new library is the Digital Science Center (DSC) where students and faculty will be able to access and find assistance for a wide range of specialized software that support the visual analysis of spatial imagery, molecular rendering and equation balancing, multivariate calculation, graphing, workflow and programming solutions to 3D modeling and animation.  The facility also includes multi-purpose spaces that support presentation preparation and practice, technology-based seminars, and library and technology instruction.
