About Eckhart Library

Eckhart Library is located on the second floor of Eckhart Hall, home of the Department of Mathematics.  Eckhart Library is home to approximately 13,000 volumes, most research level monographs, and selected textbooks in mathematics.  Because of space limitations, portions of the mathematics collections are housed in the John Crerar Library; these materials include older, low-use monographs and all print journals.

Eckhart Hall was erected in 1930 with funds donated in 1927 by Bernard A. Eckhart, a Chicago businessman.  Eckhart Hall was built to house the Mathematics Department, and it has also been used for other programs related to the physical sciences, including some work for the Manhattan Project during World War II.
