Samuel C. Williams Library
The Samuel C. Williams Library is a state of the art facility that supports the teaching, learning and research needs of the Stevens academic community. Upon entering the great hall, visitors are greeted by a large-scale hanging sculpture – the Stevens Mobile – created by Stevens alumnus and world-renowned artist, Alexander Calder '19. Once inside, faculty, students, and scholars have access to online research databases and thousands of books, e-books, scholarly journals and newspapers. A wide range of research services include an on-site research services desk, instructional workshops, as well as in-depth research consultations via appointment.
The library also offers a variety of inviting study spaces. A 2014 renovation of the second floor significantly increased study areas for students to include more than 150 seating spaces intended for both individual quiet study and engaged collaboration among small groups. As equally important, the newly-renovated second floor space includes technology upgrades to accommodate laptops and mobile devices.
Among its impressive holdings, the library boasts the Stevens archives and special collections, including the Stevens Family Collection, the Frederick Winslow Taylor Collection and the Leonardo da Vinci Collection.
