Cabot Science Library

As part of the Science Center renovations, the Cabot Science Library will transform into a flexible learning space with open, connected areas located alongside a 24-hour student commons and mobile discovery bar. After a summertime closure period following Commencement, library services and staff members will be available on the second floor beginning in the fall of 2016. The second floor will be open through the renovation period which is expected to continue through Spring 2017. The Harvard Gazette details the plans in “A Revitalized Science Center.” Cabot is Harvard's principal general science library. In addition to serving undergraduates, the library has research collections in mathematics, statistics, earth and planetary sciences, psychology and science-related interdisciplinary studies.
