Welcome to the Physics Subject Guide

This guide has been designed to provide an overview of resources available for the study and research into science based Physics area.

Find Books

Search Web OPAC to find books available at Library. Though most our collection is in print format, an increasing number of titles are available in electronic format.

E-Books Subject Call Numbers

Many e-books in the Library's collection is listed in Web OPAC, but some titles can only be found by using the e-Books collection websites.

If you are accessing this web site from off-campus, you will need to login to Ez Proxy.

The call number listed below is based on general Library of Congress subject classifications. These numbers are provided primarily as a browsing tool. This lists is presented as a quick guide to selected subject and call number ranges, and not a comprehensive research tool.
