IQI Library

We maintain our own local library covering subjects of interest to quantum information scientists. The library is housed in our interaction room, 156 Jorgensen. Books are available for check-out by faculty, students, and visitors. Please sign out the books you wish to borrow on the form above the shelves and provide the requested contact information so others can find the resources if they need them. A list of our collection is given below. If you would like something added to our collection to assist your research efforts, please contact Ann Harvey at extension 4964 or at aharvey@caltech.edu.
