George M. Bevier Engineering & Sciences Library


The Bevier Engineering Library is the primary location for resources in biological sciences, chemistry, engineering, geology and environmental science, neuroscience, physics and astronomy, mathematics, and statistics. We support the Swanson School of Engineering, the Departments of Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Geology and Environmental Science, Mathematics, Neuroscience, Physics and Astronomy, and Statistics. 

We now provide resources and services to support teaching and research in chemistry and related chemical sciences! Our collection includes print and electronic resources, books, journals, and databases such as SciFinder and Reaxys. We specialize in subjects including analytical, biological, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry, chemical synthesis, materials and nanoscience, spectroscopy, electrochemistry, and more.

The Bevier Engineering Library also now houses resources and services to support teaching and research in the biological sciences and neuroscience. Our collection includes print and electronic resources, books, journals, and literature databases such as BIOSIS Previews and PubMed or Medline. We cover the subjects of genetics, microbiology, molecular biology, plant and animal sciences, evolution, ecology, brain science and all other aspects of neuroscience, and more.
