Carlson Science and Engineering Library, named in honor of Chester Carlson, is part of the library system at the University of Rochester. While Rush Rhees Library is the largest university library, Carlson is frequented by undergraduate and graduate students in the natural sciences. The library stocks general and popular science journals as well as materials related to biology, chemistry, computer science, earth science, engineering and mathematics and statistics.

The Carlson Science Library was established in 1972 via the merger of the Chemistry and Life Sciences Libraries along with the core Mathematics and Statistics collections. In 1987 the Engineering Library merged with the Carlson Science Library to create the current Carlson Science and Engineering Library.

Carlson sits on the south end of the River Campus, in the Computer Studies Building, and connects to Hutchison Hall and the Hylan Building.
