Neilson Library Operating Status
The new Neilson Library has many great services and features for students, faculty, staff, and outside researchers. Collections include general collections, bound journals, science collections, magazines, and our Special Collections: the College Archives, the Mortimer Rare Book Collection, and the Sophia Smith Collection of women’s history.
For an overview of the letters and corresponding subject areas of the Library of Congress Classification system, see the Library of Congress Classification Outline.
Books shelved in Neilson that were formerly classified under the Dewey Decimal System have been reclassified under the Library of Congress system for ease of use.
Some library materials are housed in the Five College Annex. These materials can be requested through the catalog.
Special Collections materials and staff will move into Neilson Library starting in June 2021 and will be closed over the summer. Please visit Library Services During COVID-19 for current information about Special Collections.
