Mathematics Library

Main content

The Mathematics Library (MathBib) is a departmental library which serves the faculty and guests to the Department of Mathematics and the Institue for Mathematical Research (FIM), as well as the students at the Department of Mathematics, members of other ETH Zurich departments and external users that may need access to mathematical references.

The MathBib is a reference library. Members and guests to the Department of Mathematics can access and borrow books from the collection on a 24-hour basis. During opening hours the MathBib serves as a reading room for users interested in mathematical literature. However, the workplaces are primarily intended for students and members of the Department of Mathematics.
