Groups have priority in the small study spaces (seating four to eight) on the first and second floors. No reservations are needed: first come, first served (but please, don't leave your belongings unattended). The Collaboration rooms (one on the first floor, two on the second) have 37-inch flat screens mounted on the walls - round up a study partner or two, check out a connecting cable for your laptop at the circulation desk, and work away!
