<p>The navigation panel on the left also lists more specific resources that students can take advantage of.</p>
<p><b>Department Office</b>: The Mathematics Department Office, wonderfully staffed by Ms. Melanie Chamberlin, is located in SCI 361. Her extension is x3148. The office contains information about summer work and research opportunities, actuarial opportunities, and information about graduate studies.</p>
<p><b>Common room (SCI 362)</b>: The department common room is located in SCI 362. Whenever it is not being used for a department event, the common room is available to students for study or discussion. If you need to consult someone on a mathematical idea, the common room is one place to try. This room is also used in the evenings as the Math Help Room.</p>
<p><!--
<b><p>Lending Library</b>: If you are seeking some additional practice problems or another perspective on a mathematical concept, try browsing through this informal lending library. In the hall outside the Common Room you will find several bookcases of mathematics textbooks. These books are available for student use. Just sign a book out on the list posted at the end of the bookcase to borrow it, and then cross off your name when you return the book. Many of the books are calculus texts, but there are also books on linear algebra, differential equations and statistics.<br />

<p><b>The Mathematics Computer Laboratory (SCI 257)</b>: Outfitted with Macintosh computers, the computer lab is open all day and evening most days, and the computers are available for students to use whenever the lab is not being used for a class. Each of the computers is equipped with <i>Mathematica</i> and <i>Joy of Mathematica</i>, as well as a variety of other software. Both <i>Mathematica</i> and <i>Joy of Mathematica</i> are also available at various sites around campus, including the Science Center Minifocus.</p>
<p><b>Science Library</b>: The Science Library is a wonderful resource. Explore it for suggested alternative texts, for popular mathematics books, or biographies of famous mathematicians. Check out on their webpage of <a href="http://libguides.wellesley.edu/math">interesting mathematics sources</a>.</p>
