On January 7, 2022, Leonard H. Gemmill Engineering, Mathematics & Physics Library experienced a flood due to a broken water pipe. The library will be closed for at least a month, and during that time there will be no access to the collection housed there. Please check the Gemmill Library website for the most up-to-date information.

Here are some tips for using the libraries during the time when Gemmill is closed:

  • You can use Norlin Library, which has study space and study rooms available to all students. Starting January 24, you can access three additional libraries on campus. The Business Library is the location closest to the Engineering Center.
  • If you need access to Gemmill’s collection, we recommend that you request items primarily through Prospector and then through interlibrary loan. Prospector generally has a faster turnaround time. 
  • Gemmill Library’s book drop box is closed. You can return any book to any library or book drop on campus, even if you checked the book out at Gemmill. Use the campus map to find locations.
  • Course reserves in Gemmill Library will be made available in Norlin Library.
  • Need access to a computer with the same software as the computer lab in Gemmill? These computer labs  have the same or similar software:
    • ECCR 252
    • ECCR 235
    • ECCE 142
    • SCB A205 (east campus)
    • ECCE 141
    • ECCR 235
    • ECCE 141 and ECCR 235 (these are classrooms available for open use when classes not in session)
  • Looking for a particular software? Find a lab based on the software you need.
  • If you have questions about your research, or need help honing your research topic, you can request a consultation with an expert librarian.
  • Questions? Ask a Librarian via email, IM or phone.
  • Faculty, please submit your requests for instruction as soon as possible.
