The Allan Price Science Commons & Research Library (or "Price Science Commons") supports the natural and physical sciences.  During Fall 2020, many of our spaces, like most of campus, have been altered to support social distancing; however, we still have computers, study spaces, a makerspace, and access to research help.  Many of our study spaces are reservable, and we do want you to reserve spaces before you come in.

The Anatomage table provides high-definition digital renderings of human anatomical structures.
The MakerSpace has laser and vinyl cutters, embroidery and heavy-duty sewing machines, lamination, a mini mill, and more. Some machines and tools will be unavailable during fall 2020 due to the difficulty of cleaning them between users.
50-million-pixel screen for viewing high-definition images and data visualization. Available for instructional and research uses by reservation only. For fall term 2020, we will only be allowing groups of six or fewer, who remain socially distanced within the room, to use the space.
The PSC has two flexible classrooms designed for active learning. Priority is given to science classes using active learning pedagogy. For fall 2020 the classrooms will be available only for instructors who want to make use of flexible technology to record remote class content, or as assigned by the Registrar; the rooms will be locked when not in use for approved functions.
PSC has a lot of open study areas with a variety of furniture. For fall 2020 most "soft" furniture is put away, and guests will be required to maintain social distance of six feet.
Games for Playstation, XBox, and Wii are available to borrow from the Price Science Commons.
