If you’ve been in the Main Library recently, you’ve noticed some activity. We’re getting ready for beginning of construction that will transform the first floor of the Main Library into a learning commons. There have been movers pushing carts of books around and now student employees are dismantling bookshelves on the east side of the second floor and the old graduate student carrels on the east side of fourth floor. As you can guess there is a certain amount of noise involved in these projects. If you are looking for some quiet study space, check out:
- west side of the second floor (where the art, music and East Asian collections are located)
- north study lounge on the second floor overlooking the north entrance and the exhibition hall
- east side of the third floor in the journal stacks
- west side of the fourth floor
- fifth floor
If you have some other suggestions for good study space in the library post it on our Work Smarter, Not Harder tumblr page.
