About the Collection
The Physics Library is one of many campus libraries at the University of Toronto. It serves primarily the faculty, staff, students, and researchers of the Department of Physics. The collection of books and journals reflects the Physics Department's teaching and research interests in quantum optics, condensed matter physics, particle physics, atmospheric physics and geophysics. A complete collection of the Physics Department M.Sc. and Ph.D theses/dissertations form an integral part of our holdings. The university's growing collection of online electronic resources form the UTL Virtual Library for our physics researchers.
The Short Term Loan collection contains books that are normally course-related. They are kept separately near the Circulation Desk and are for overnight loan only.
New Book collection purchased in the current year is kept apart from the general book section for convenient browsing. They circulate with a normal book loan period.
Some of our journals and older theses are kept in storage in the Department. When requested, a storage item is retrieved from storage once a day during 2-3 p.m. After 3 p.m., the storage item will be available for use in the library.
Records for our collection, including theses and dissertations, are in the Library Catalogue.
The Physics Library collection numbers about 35,570 volumes, with 50 journal titles.
