Quiet Study Areas
The library should be a place conducive to study.However, due to space limitations especially during certain times during the semester, finding a quiet area to study may be difficult.
There are two quiet study areas within the Library; first floor adjacent to Stack Room #2, and in Stack Room# 6, on the third floor. Additionally, groups that want/need a place to study may make a request to book one of our study rooms in the Information Commons located on the second floor of the Public Square building.
It is understood that occasionally there is a need for library patrons to discuss research assignments with their colleagues; however, since this is a shared space for all patrons of the library to use, we ask that you please be considerate of others by keeping conversations at a low volume.Therefore, it is requested that any conversation be kept at a low volume.Any extended conversations should be conducted outside of the library.
There are two comfortable reading areas within the library.They are located in the wings of the main Reference Area and in the Dominican Reading room on the 3rd floor (north side of the campus) of the library adjacent to stack rooms 2, 3, 4.
