# Mathematics

The library's historical mathematics holdings date back to the sixteenth century, with expanded holdings after 1950 primarily in English, Czech, and German. We now actively collect materials in all mathematics-related disciplines, with a large number of print and online books and journals supplemented by other online resources.
