Science Library

Closed for more than a year as part of the Science Complex Renovations, the new Ruth Lilly Science Library re-opened August 25 with the beginning of Fall Semester 2021! 

Located on the 2nd floor of the Holcomb Building, the Science Library has both a fresh new look (more windows, seats, whiteboards, and study rooms), as well as updated services and policies.

Butler students enjoy 24/7 access to the both the stacks area study space, as well as the front room which contains a copier/scanner/printer, a small meeting space reservable via EMS, and a computer lab. Card swipe access will always be required to access the stacks area, so be sure to have your ID on you when entering and exiting the library.

Butler Libraries' Information Commons program (a collaboration with the Center for Academic Technology) now staffs the service desk, offering the same services also available at Irwin Library. Hours are still being determined, but while the IC Desk is staffed, the front entry doors will unlocked and accessible without a campus ID.

A self-checkout station is available in the stacks study space, and security cameras and gates have been updated to provide control of materials despite the 24/7 access.

We are still working through re-supplying and staffing the Science Library after its complete renovation, so please contact us with questions or needs using the Ask button above.
