Encyclopedia of Mathematics Rebirth

Ten years ago, Kluwer published an online version of the multi-volume Encyclopaedia of Mathematics (QA5 .M37213 1988, Math Reference) , which had been translated and updated from the original 1977 Russian version, Matematicheskaya entsiklopediya. After Springer bought Kluwer, this online version ceased being updated and was made freely available online.

Now, Springer and the European Mathematical Society are sponsoring the conversion of this respected work into a public wiki encyclopedia. An editorial board led by Ulf Rehmann (Univ. Bielefeld) will oversee the future development of this publicly available resource. They encourage mathematicians everywhere to contribute to the transformation of this important resource.

Library Collection Shift Almost Complete

The two students who have been working on our collection have finished their book by book inventory. They have reshifted the main floor (A-QA272) and have almost finished reshifting our upper floor (QA273-Z). There is now lots of room for future growth.

Their last task will be reshifting the journals collection in Math Storage. There should be plenty of room down there too.

You may request journal vols. at any time through the catalog, by email, or in person. Should you ever want to go there, remember to get the call number first before you go. The journals there are now in Library of Congress call no. order. This helps us manage the collection better.
