Books in Booth Library are shelved by call number. Below is a list of the call number ranges for subjects within the Mathematics field. Browsing for books can help familiarize you with the collection. Books in the stacks are found on the 1st floor South, on the movable shelves toward the right, and these books can be borrowed with your Panther Card. You can also find math reference books, including encyclopedias, dictionaries, and guides to famous mathematicians, in the reference area, 3rd floor north, next to the reference computer lab.

Choose the EIU Online Catalog to find books in the library, and in the search box, type in keywords describing what you'd like to find. You'll find the best results using simple words or phrases, such as "linear algebra" (in quotes). Click on each title to find more information about the item. The catalog will also find information on videos, ebooks, government publications, and more.

The Testing and Education Reference Center (TERC), available to all EIU students, faculty, and staff, offers full-length practice tests and online books covering the GRE's quantitative reasoning section. TERC also provides books and example tests for the SAT subject tests for mathematics, among many other standardized tests.

Booth Library offers several databases useful for finding articles in mathematics. All databases are accessible from off campus as well; just log in with your EIU netID and password. Think about your topic in terms of keywords, which can either be connected by AND/OR/NOT on the same line, or separated on different lines.

To obtain the articles you want, click on the full-text if available, or click on the Get Full Text link to see whether your article is available online or in print through another Booth Library source.

MathSciNet - A comprehensive database covering articles in mathematics, from 1940 to present. It provides access to the bibliographic data and reviews of mathematical research literature contained in the Mathematical Reviews Database. This should be your first stop when looking for articles in math.

Academic Search Complete - Full articles and abstracts from articles covering a wide range of academic topics, including math.

Applied Science and Technology Abstracts - Citations and abstracts of journal articles in applied mathematics and other areas of applied science and technology.

ERIC - Articles covering the field of education, including mathematics teaching and educational resources in math.
