Mission statement

The Allyn and Betty Taylor Library is committed to satisfying information needs by providing research and resource services for all individuals, where ever they might be, engaged in teaching, learning and research in the health, biomedical, biological, physical, mathematical and engineering sciences.

The layout

The library itself is six stories, however, it is laid out in a unique fashion. The main floor (M) contains the service desk, study rooms, as well as many large study tables, and is considered a "normal conversation area". The two lower floors, Ground (G), and Lower Ground (LG), contain upwards of one hundred study cubicles for quiet study, and is considered a "silent area". Both G and LG contain Taylor's collection of periodicals. There are also six floors (S1-S6), which are known collectively as "the stacks", and house the majority of the books.
