The NIP Library (National Institute of Physics) is one of the six satellite libraries being established by the College of Science Library, UP Diliman. The library started to operate last April 14, 2011. Currently, the collection consists of 831 theses, 850 books, several print journals and access to online journals through the university’s online journal subscription. E-books are also available at the library. Collection’s emphasis is on physics; other science related collections are also included especially mathematics and other physics related subjects.

Underway project for the library is its institutional digital collection. Full text online access to the institute’s faculty publication, theses, and online journals among the few, will be included in this database. You may check us up for updates regarding this project.

NIP Library is under the National Institute of Physics, College of Science, UP Diliman. NIP is considered to be the best school in physics in the country. It is also declared as “National Center of Excellence” in physics education through Executive Order of the President of the Republic of the Philippines.
