About the Fermilab Library

Our goal is to support high energy physics research at Fermilab, and to support the high energy physics community worldwide.

The Library is part of the Information Resources Group, led by Heath O’Connell, which is part of the Core Computing Division.

We are located in Wilson Hall on the third floor crossover. The Library has about 15,000 books, from college-level texts to more advanced research. There are also current magazines, journals, and back issues of journals not available online. Here you will find photocopiers, printers, scanners, and five computers for your use. The Library is open 24/7 to persons with Wilson Hall access. It is staffed Mondays through Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Open to the public by appointment.

Fermilab badge holders may check out books anytime. There is a limit of twenty books per employee and ten books for staff in all other categories. Please use self-service check-out when the library is not staffed. We welcome requests for books and journal articles. We obtain books and articles from local, national and international sources. Most articles are e-mailed as PDFs in one day.
