About the Chemistry Library



welch map The Mallet Chemistry Library serves the chemical research needs of the University of Texas at Austin, particularly for the students, faculty, and staff of the Dept. of Chemistry, the Biochemistry Division of the Dept. of Molecular Biosciences, and the Dept. of Chemical Engineering. Mallet is a unit of the University of Texas Libraries and one of several science branch libraries on the Austin campus.

Our digital library includes campuswide access to CAS SciFinder, Reaxys, the CRC Handbook, the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia, Science of Synthesis (Houben-Weyl), and hundreds of electronic journals in the chemical sciences, including those from the American Chemical Society and the Royal Society of Chemistry and their archives.

The Chemistry Library's collections total over 100,000 volumes covering chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering, and food technology. The Library's strong historical journal collection includes over 1,100 titles as far back as 1789. The library holds a complete archive of printed Chemical Abstracts from 1907 to 2001, as well as major works such as the Beilstein Handbook of Organic Chemistry, the Gmelin Handbook of Inorganic Chemistry, Landolt-Börnstein, and complete sets of the Sadtler Standard Spectra. All materials in the collection, including those in storage, are represented in the Library Catalog.

Location and Services: The Library is located on the ground floor of the north wing of Welch Hall, on the southwest corner of 24th Street and Speedway Blvd. If you're driving to campus, consult the UT parking maps for details.

The library is open to the general public; a valid UT ID or Courtesy Borrower Card is required to check out materials. See the Borrower Services page for more information. Library Hours are available online. Reserves books are available for limited loan at the Circulation Desk. Reference assistance and consultation is usually available in person or by phone weekdays 9am-5pm, as well as via electronic mail. We provide EID-login workstations, scanning, and wireless connectivity for UT-Austin users, as well as a cash-card photocopier and printer.

The Chemistry Library was established in 1883. It is named for John W. Mallet, the first professor of chemistry at UT Austin.
