Study Areas

  • The Library has designated three Reading Rooms as quiet study areas. The North and South Reading Rooms are on the Plaza Level, and the third Reading Room, called the Student Study, is on the Third Floor. No talking or visiting is allowed in these rooms at any time.
  • The Library has designated the Browsing Lower Levels in the West Wing as group study areas where quiet talking is allowed. 
  • Go to the Gray Commons on the Third Floor, directly above the Circulation Desk, for not-so-quiet group study.  (But remember you ARE still in a library!) 
  • McFarlin provides one private group study room for current students, located on the Third Floor, next to the Helen N. Wallace Writing Center.  It contains a large conference table, comfortable chairs, a large whiteboard, and power and data outlets for laptops.  Contact the Writing Center to reserve this room.

Printing, Copying, & Scanning

  • Photocopy machines are available on the Intermediate and Lower Levels. (Copiers for microfilm and microfiche are available only on the Lower Level at no charge.)
  • The photocopy machines cost 10 cents per page. The machines will take nickels, dimes, or quarters. A change machine is available on the Intermediate Level.

Where to Check Out?

Go to the Check Out Desks on either the Plaza Level or the Main Level (West Wing) to borrow, renew, and return books and other library materials; check out reserve and interlibrary loan materials; and inquire about loan periods.
