Lane Reading Room

The Lane Reading Room houses the Humanities and Area Studies Resource Center. Traditional study and reading space is complemented by wireless Internet access and computer workstations. The room offers printed reference collections and specific "mini-collections" devoted to important topical areas, including collections of new fiction and new books in the scholarly fields of the humanities. Reference materials aiding in the use of Special Collections can also be found here. The Lane Reading Room is located directly above the Social Sciences Resource Center.

Chemistry & Chemical Engineering study area

As you enter the library, a small room on the left has three computers and four lounge chairs.  Natural light from large windows, a couple of plants, and a coffee table make this a comfortable place to work or chat with colleagues.

The reference room contains an abundance of natural lighting as well as four large tables.  A scanning workstation is located by the front entrance of the room. People in this room are usually quiet, but space is occasionally used by people working in groups.

Biology study areas

The library has several small study areas. There are dozens of seats at large tables, 13 very private study carrels down a hallway in the center of the library, several balconies with tables and chairs, and some comfortable armchairs.

Four small, locked study carrels are available for longer-term use; keys can be checked out for up to a quarter, depending on availability.

Art study areas

The main reading room and the reading room mezzanine contain seating, tables, six large lounge chairs, and large bay windows.  Equipment for media viewing in those rooms includes two large flat screen stations (one Blu-ray), one 30-inch screen station, and one 20-inch screen station.
