Three shelves of academic books on science-related subjects
Coming Soon: 
Shelf Browsing!

On Monday, June 21, Sherman Fairchild Library will move to the next stage in our reopening plan, and current Caltech students, faculty, and staff will be invited into the building to browse the shelves Monday through Friday, 11 am–4 pm.

Collections at other library locations are available for request online and can be picked up at the SFL service window.

To browse the shelves, please sign in at the SFL service window and receive a visitor's badge. A maximum of 25 people will be allowed in the building at one time for 30 minutes each. You may request an additional 30 minutes when your time is up at the Circulation Desk (if there are no other patrons waiting).

Stay tuned for the return of more physical services later this summer.
