The James I. and Carol Aymar Armstrong Science Library, housed in McCardell Bicentennial Hall, provides curriculum support in the fields of biology, chemistry and biochemistry, computer science, environmental studies, geography, geology, physics, and psychology.
In addition to housing research materials in a variety of formats, the library serves as a convenient and comfortable place to study. It features a computer lab, self-booking group study rooms, study carrels, tables and soft chairs, computers for quick look-ups and more intensive work, video viewing stations, and microfilm and microfiche reader/printers. Loaner laptops, graphing calculators, and other equipment are available for checkout at the Circulation Desk. A display case at the entrance to the library features exhibits showcasing physical specimen collections.
The Armstrong Library is staffed by three full-time and approximately 16 part-time (student) employees with assistance from staff at the Main Library. The number of student workers is reduced during summer months. Circulation and use policies are closely aligned with those of the Main Library.
