Collections for PMA

PMA Monthly Library Newsletter - May, 2024

Print collections for PMA are in Cahill (astronomy), the Sherman Fairchild Library (physics and math) and the Caltech Hall basement (astronomy overflow). The Caltech Hall basement is closed to browsing. If you need material shelved in this space, please page it via LibSearch. 

LibSearch is our catalogue / discovery service and can be used to find both print and electronic items. 

If you come across something that you'd like the library to buy, please email me or submit a request via this form
