Goddard Library

Gordon Library

Goddard Library named for Robert Hutchings Goddard, the Clark physicist who invented the rocket technology that made space travel possible.

With nearly half a million books, periodicals, and research materials, and four floors of quiet study and research spaces, the Robert Hutchings Goddard Library — named for the Clark physicist known as the father of the space age — is the center of academic life at Clark. On the first floor, you’ll find the Academic Commons, a bustling area for group study or catching up with friends, as well as the ITS Help Desk, Archives and Special Collections, the Office of Academic Support, the Writing Center, quiet study lounges, a computer lab, and Jazzman’s Café.
