About the Chemistry Library

welch map The Mallet Chemistry Library is a unit of the University of Texas Libraries serving 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.

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

The Chemistry Library's print collection totals over 100,000 volumes covering all aspects of 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 Chemical Abstracts from 1907 to 2001, as well as major works such as the Beilstein Handbook, the Gmelin Handbook, Landolt-Börnstein, Houben-Weyl, and the Sadtler Standard Spectra. All materials in the collection, including those in storage, are represented in the Library Catalog.

Location and Services: The Mallet Library is currently closed for a major renovation of the 1978 (south) wing of Welch Hall. The collection has been relocated to temporary quarters and storage until an anticipated reopening in early 2020. See the Closing Page for more information.

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