The Mathematics Library collection is located in 216 Altgeld Hall, which is at the corner of Green and Wright streets. The Mathematics Library at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has one of the finest subject-specific collections in the United States. It includes materials in both pure and applied mathematics, the mathematics of computation, and mathematical statistics. Since 1893, this outstanding collection has grown from one 15-foot shelf to over 100,000 volumes, with more than 1,000 current subscriptions to journals and monographic series, a majority available online.

The Mathematics Library staff strives to provide the best in library services. We are happy to answer questions you may have, locate library materials, and assist you with overdue or lost materials. We can also assist with reference and research questions, library use instruction, and library orientation tours.
