Eckhart Library is located on the second floor of Eckhart Hall, home of the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Statistics; the Department of Computer Science occupies the adjacent Ryerson Hall. Eckhart Library is home to approximately 55,000 volumes, including research level monographs, scholarly journals, and selected textbooks in computer science, mathematics, and statistics. Because of space limitations, portions of the mathematics, statistics, and computer science collections are housed in the John Crerar Library; these materials include older, low-use monographs and print journals that are available in electronic form.
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.
