We are delighted to announce Vroman’s @ Caltech Library, our new partnership with Pasadena’s own Vroman’s Bookstore, Southern California’s oldest and largest independent bookstore. University Librarian Kara Whatley and the Vroman’s staff have curated a collection designed specifically for the Caltech community. The collection is focused on academic research and science and technology titles published in the past year. The books are available for review and can be ordered in the TechHub located on the first floor of Caltech Hall.
From scholarly monographs—such as Mathematical Models in the Biosciences and Water Resource Technology Management for Engineering Applications—to science-themed nonfiction for a more general audience—such as The Earthquake Observers: Disaster Science from Lisbon to Richter and Black Hole Blues and Other Songs from Outer Space—the collection seeks to capture the interests of Caltech students, staff, and faculty.
Vroman’s entire inventory will also be available to order for campus delivery twice a week. Books can be picked up at the TechHub and delivery to campus offices is available.
The Library is pleased to begin this community-building relationship and we look forward to curating additional special collections in the future. Visit Vroman’s @ Caltech Library online or in person at the TechHub (first floor of Caltech Hall).
