Each floor can connect to the wireless network; there are also additional wall outlets to power your laptop. If you need to use your cell-phone, we ask that you set your phone to a silent indicator and take calls to the stairwells or entrance. Seeing as this can be a stressful time of the semester, we encourage everyone to be mindful of others so that all areas of the library prove conducive for productive work.
First floor (book stacks)
Visit the first floor to find the library’s group study rooms (that can be reserved using the Study Room Reservation System). Additionally, there are many large tables to accommodate group work. Snack machines can also be found here. A small bank of computers accesses online resources and the MS Office suite of software. For additional software, visit the InfoLab on second.
Second floor (entrance level)
The second floor (or entrance level) hosts the DoIT InfoLab as well as library circulation and reference services where you can get assistance from staff. The floor offers some relaxed seating and tables for reasonably-quiet group or individual study.
Third floor (journal collections)
The third floor affords table seating and individual study carrels. While it is generally a quieter study area than the first floor (for instance), the open atrium with its view of second, does permit some sound to carry.
Fourth floor (journal collections, government documents, University Archives)
This floor has been designated as the quiet study floor for this building. While there will be some staff working in this space between the hours of 8:00am-5:00pm, the library endeavors to preserve this space for quiet study needs. Large tables and individual carrels are available.
All the best for a successful midterm!
