The Carlson Science and Engineering library serves all members of the Laboratory for Laser Energetics. The experienced and dedicated staff strives to minimize the time and effort that researchers spend on gathering information whether that information is in River Campus Libraries, elsewhere at the University of Rochester, or around the world.
Carlson Science and Engineering Library, with over 35,000 square feet of space is the primary library for LLE at the University of Rochester; recently the university opened a 1000 square feet visualization lab (VISTA) for visualizing big data on the first floor of this facility. Physics-Optics-Astronomy (POA) Library also provides important resources to you. The River Campus Libraries have access to more than 16000 online journals and their archives and more than 100 databases of scientific and technical literature such as Web of Science, Compendex Web, IEEE Xplore and ACM, SPIE, and Synthesis digital libraries. The libraries provide access to over over 600,000 ebook collections some of them from major science and technology publishers, Wiley, Elsevier, Springer and technology collections such as Safari Books. Students, faculty and staff can connect to these resources from anywhere in the world by their computers and mobile devices.
The Library also provides a scanner, photocopiers, and public computers.
