Cabot Science Library

Cabot Library is transforming!

Through the Science Center renovation project, we are transforming the Cabot Science Library into a powerful learning space. The new Cabot will include flexible learning environments, multimedia video studios, group study and teaching spaces, a cafe and a Discovery Bar. The Harvard Gazette details the plans in “A Revitalized Science Center.”

During construction, Cabot Science Library is open on the second floor, with full library services, access to collections and spaces, and in-person assistance from librarians.

How to find Cabot Library during construction:

  • Enter from the Science Center Plaza through a separate door to the right of the main entrance.
  • Accessible entrance: Take main elevators in the Science Center to the second floor and follow signs near the Mathematics department offices.
