The Engineering Library, Carpenter Hall, Cornell University, transitioned to a virtual library with enhanced e-book and e-journal resources on July 1, 2011. Any print books circulating in the last 5 years were retained in a central campus library(20,000 to Uris, 3,000 to the Math, and 1,500 to Mann); the rest were moved to the Library Annex. Course reserves are served primarily from Uris Library.
Carpenter Hall remains open 24/7 with a Cornell ID card. It has over 100 computers, study space, and group study rooms.
