Mathematics Library

The Boas Mathematics Library is located on the first floor of Lunt Hall; with a large collection of books and journals the Mathematics Library houses a research collection in pure mathematics and statistics of approximately 34,000 volumes.  The library primarily serves Northwestern’s Mathematics Department and Statistics Department as well as the NU Community. 

The library is named after the late Ralph P. Boas (1912-1992), distinguished mathematician and former executive editor of the Mathematical Reviews - the world's leading index to mathematical publications. He was a long time faculty member and chair of the Mathematics Department at Northwestern.
