A guide to the major resources for mathematics.

In the Tufts Catalog, all resources are classified using the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH). Broad subject headings include:

- Mathematics (including many subheadings)
- Algebra
- Equations
- Geometry
- Logic, Symbolic and mathematical
- Set theory
- Statistics

In addition, subject headings exist for mathematics as a subheading of another subject, e.g. *Architecture - Mathematics* or *Algebra of Currents*.

In most Tufts libraries, print resources are shelved according to the alphanumeric Library of Congress Classification (LCC) System. Relevant LCC *Call Number* ranges for mathematics include:

- QA Mathematics
- QA1-43 General mathematics
- QA75.5-76.95 Computer science
- QA76.75-76.765 Computer software
- QA101-145 Elementary mathematics. Arithmetic
- QA150-272.5 Algebra
- QA273-299 Probabilities. Mathematical statistics. Numerical analysis
- QA273-280 Statistics
- QA440-699 Geometry. Trigonometry. Topology
- QA801-939 Analytic mechanics

In addition, sources on mathematics as applied to a specific discipline are shelved in that discipline:

- HB135-147 Econometrics (as a subcategory of economics)
- QT or R853 Biomedical calculations (as a subcategory of biomedicine)

- Credo ReferenceDictionaries, Encyclopedias, and other reference books that can be searched on individually or together.
- KnovelIncludes not only full text of major technical handbooks but also interactive charts and tables and the ability to screen content for particular formulas or measurements.
- SIAM e-Book CollectionFrom the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.
- Google Books on MathematicsEspecially useful for older texts.
- Online Books Page - Mathematics TopicsFrom University of Pennsylvania, collection of digital texts. Can drill down to specific mathematics sub-disciplines.
- Open Textbook InitiativeFrom the American Institute of Mathematics (AIM), collection of recommended open source math texts.
- DML: Digital Mathematics LibraryDirectory of digitized mathematics journals and monographs. Includes links to mathematics repositories worldwide and to publications from smaller mathematics societies.

- Advances in MathematicsFrom Springer.
- Lecture Notes in MathematicsFrom Springer.
- Memoirs of the American Mathematical SocietyAvailable in both print and (starting in 2009) online formats.
- Monographs in MathematicsBook series begun in 1944 and now published by Springer. A number of the volumes are available in the Tisch Print Collection and more recent works are online in SpringerLink (see above).
- SIAM Book Series on MathematicsOver 10 series of monographs of various mathematics. Includes collaborations with ASA, NSF Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS), and through the support of the National Science Foundation, and the Mathematical Optimization Society (MOS).

Handbook Search Tip: Search in the Tufts Catalog in the *Title* or *Subject *fields for combinations of mathematics terms alongside reference type, such as Handbook, Encyclopedia, Dictionary, or Manual. Strongly-focused mathematics print references are located in the QA section of the stacks; specialty publications may be located in other sections, such as economics, health and medicine, engineering, and other areas of applied mathematics.
