Physics Research Library is now Physics Reading Room
Our circulating collections have been moved to the newly-renovated Cabot Science Library and Harvard Depository. Please consult HOLLIS, Harvard Library's catalog, to find the current location of any item you wish to borrow.
A small, non-circulating collection of our most popular books, as well as physics classics and books by Harvard physics faculty, will remain on premises. Circulating copies of all these books are available either in Cabot or one of the other Harvard libraries.
All are welcome to use our lovely, light-filled, and comfortable reading room to read, study, or just relax!
The Reading Room is open to the Harvard community as well as qualified non-Harvard researchers Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm.
After-hours and weekend access to the building is controlled by a card-swipe system. Physics department faculty, students, staff members, as well as undergraduate physics concentrators and qualified visitors, may apply for after-hours access. Please see the Building Services FAQs page for further information.
