The Statistics Department maintains a small library containing books and journals that are available to all graduate students and undergraduate students majoring in Statistics.

Library in Olmsted Hall

A collection of materials from the estate of the late Harry H. Harman, a pioneer in factor analysis, was the basis of the library. Also included are the books and papers from the late Morris J. Garber, a Statistics Professor who brought computing to UCR and F.N David, our first department Chair.


Books are cataloged and arranged alphabetically by the first three letters of the author’s last name followed by the first initial of the first name. Dr. FN David material is only available by special request through the Department office.


The department has a section of older statistics related journals in the Harry H. Harman Memorial Library but most Statistics journals can be found through the campus libraries at http://goo.gl/KxyFqg.


Statistics Dissertations are available online through the Library at https://library.ucr.edu/


Orbach Science Library

The Orbach Science Library  has an extensive statistics collection, including statistics resources and associations, journals, dissertations and research help.
