The mathematics collection supports the teaching, research, and service activities of the entire university community; although its primary audience is the faculty, staff, and students of the Department of Mathematics in the College of Arts and Sciences, and secondary audience is the faculty, staff, and students in Computer Science. Its primary focus is support for the undergraduate and graduate curricula for mathematics; its secondary focus is support for research and teaching in mathematics. Specific and transient research needs of mathematics faculty and graduate students should be supplemented through Interlibrary Loan. Materials are not purchased for the general public, though they may benefit from the collection. While the collection focuses on works classified in Mathematics (QA), curriculum and research support is also provided by works classified as belonging to, for example, Statistics (HA), Biology (QH), Engineering and Technology (T-TA). The bulk of the mathematics collection is housed in the Math Library housed in Avery Hall. Additional titles, depending upon the cross-discipline use, may be housed in the Engineering Library or Love Library. Usage statistics for the mathematics collection show consistent high circulation.
