Basically, all of the 3rd floor is designated as quiet study with the exception of the carrels adjacent to the atrium. Specifically, these areas are:
3rd floor - stacks wing (the side of the third floor that houses our books stacks) & reading room (room 3170, the large room with double door at west end of library)
In addition, there is a quiet area on the 2nd floor, the quiet study room (room 2102, the large room with no door across the east bridge).
In the quiet areas, please set your cell phones to silent and refrain from having conversations with others. The library and your fellow students thank you.
Looking for sources for a research project? Try clicking Start Your Research on the library homepage. We have many subject-specific guides that will point you toward books in our library and others, key databases and journal titles, web sites, and more. Lists of new books and DVDs in that area, and tables of contents of most recent issues of key journals, are updated automatically. You will also see the contact information for the librarian subject specialist in that area. Ask us a question, or let us know if there’s a resource you think should be included! You can choose guides by subject (Cultural Studies, for example), or you can click on a course code, such as SBS, to see a list of guides that are relevant to research in that area.
The library wants to share some changes to our database lineup with you. Over the 2013 summer break, our consortial office reviewed databases and made some changes to the databases they support on our behalf. We anticipate that the new database content should more than adequately replace the content no longer available. Please feel free to Ask a Librarian should you have any questions.
