Welcome!

Welcome to my research Guide to Physics!  The purpose of this guide is to identify for you some of the best places to begin your research.  Questions, comments on the content, and suggestions for additions to the guide are welcome.  Please use the Chat bar in the right margin and the information under the librarian photo box in the left-most column to contact us.

Where is...

Books on physics may be found in the general collection in the "QC's" which are located on the second floor of the library, back wall, facing the Labuda Theatre.  Physics reference materials are cataloged with a "REF QC..." on the spine of the book and these are shelved in the Reference Collection on the first floor. 

Use the Journal Titles page in the red box on the library home page to identify full-text Physics journals in the library physical and e-journal collection. Search physics and then on the results page choose "physics" under the Subject category in the left column.
