Library spaces


Quiet Study:

The second floor has been designated for quiet study. Try out the carrels (shown at right) upstairs on the west end by the windows.









NSU Reading Clinic:

Hours: 3-5 PM, Monday-Thursday during the school year.

Staffed by NSU Education students, supervised by Dr. Timothy Houge, and hosted in the library on the second floor, the Reading Clinic provides literacy assistance for 1st through 12th graders. Any time they're not in use for Reading Clinic activities, the carrels are open for use by library patrons.


Group Spaces:

Groups have priority in the small studies (seating 4-8) 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 (1 on the first, 2 on the second) have 37" 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!




Computers (Reference Area and Library Lab):
The majority of student-use computers are grouped in the Reference area on the first floor. The library also has five Mac computers available on the east side of the first floor. Two computers are available to the public; however, the NSU community has priority.





Exhibit Space:

The library hosts a variety of art exhibits throughout the year. For more information regarding artwork in the library, or to request space to exhibit your artwork, please submit an exhibit request.




Music Listening Room:

Located on the second floor, this space provides three listening stations for accessing music CDs and LPs from the library/NSU Music Department's extensive collection. A computer workstation provides access to the library's music databases, as well as finding aids for the library's sheet music vertical file and Berggren Collection CDs and LPs.



DDN Rooms:

Located on the first floor (straight in, down the hall and to the left) these rooms are used for DDN classes, online meeting spaces, and occasionally for classroom spaces. Room 117 may be reserved through the library for use as a group study space, a speech practice area, or a campus meeting space. Contact NET Services to reserve Room 116.
