Today’s science fiction is tomorrow’s science fact – Isaac Asimov
We brought over some books from Ellis Library for our new science fiction book display. Curious about what the world would be like if AI’s achieved consciousness or if the people of Mars decided to fight for independence?

All of these titles are available for checkout so grab one or two for the road!

In addition to our study rooms, we also made a few small changes to the library as a whole while you all have been away this summer.
- In order to de-clutter and really open up our space, we removed some unused or unnecessary furniture including a dictionary stand, stools, a metal table, a bookcase, and study carrels. Don’t worry, there are still a ton of carrels left for you solitary studiers!
- We rearranged the furniture in our newly acquired space and added a display case given to us by the College of Engineering to show off more Engineering memorabilia from the Heritage Collection.
- We received new chairs and a few new tables for our study rooms from the College of Engineering. The new Student Services Enhancement Fee helped us pay to paint the walls behind the monitors so there is less eye strain when using them.
- We redid our call number labels at the ends of the stacks for a more polished, user friendly look. The labels now have acrylic holders for durability and they contain subject headings for easier browsing.
- The College of Engineering gave us framed Dean portraits to replace our paper ones on the Heritage Collection display board (Dean Loboa’s portrait is still pending).
We would like to give a big thank you to everyone who helped us change things around!

On August 21, 2017, the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE (imagine that in a deep, booming voice, okay?) will be gracing the skies of our campus. You may also remember that this is the first day of classes for the fall semester. Now before we get upset about the timing, we must keep in mind that the moon is on a very tight schedule. Fortunately for us, we are in the path of totality and campus is having all sorts of events.
Let’s just say we did not want to miss out on the fun! To celebrate, we will be giving out solar eclipse glasses to everyone who stops by the Engineering Library on the day of the event! It is important that you wear the glasses before and after totality otherwise the intense light from the sun will damage your eyes. You can take them off during totality and experience the full glory for a couple minutes or so.
We only have a limited amount so be sure to get here early on the 21st!
For more information about the eclipse and what to expect visit https://eclipse.aas.org/
UPDATE: We are out of glasses. Thanks for stopping by this morning!
You may notice when you come back to the library at the start of the semester that our study rooms look a little different! We would like to give a big thank you to the Student Services Enhancement Fee for providing the funds for us to paint the wall behind our monitors and to the College of Engineering for our new tables and chairs!
Reserve one of our four new and improved study rooms online.
