Additional Seating & Enhanced Services in the Central Reading Room

During construction, we have added more seating and enhanced services to the Central Reading Room. The CoLA booths, computers, and printers have been moved from North Reading Room to the 1st floor of Central Reading Room.

Looking for a place to study? We have also added additional seating to the 2nd floor of Central Reading Room and the Main Stacks. Too crowded on the 1st floor of Central Reading Room? Go upstairs to find cooler, quieter, less crowded areas in the library!
