Welcome, or welcome back! You’ve survived move-in, pinned up your inspirational posters and tucked in your extra-long twin sheets. But now what? Well, a good place to start is the library. Since there’s no student center on campus, we’ve informally become the heart of the university.
If you’re new around these parts, here are a few pointers to get you oriented:
- Milton S. Eisenhower Library is 6 levels. From top to bottom they are Q(uad), M(ain) and A-D. B and below are quiet floors if you need to concentrate. Books are located on every level except Q.
- Right next door we have the Brody Learning Commons, which is open 24/7 for all your studying (and socializing!) needs. People really love the big windows and natural light. You can also find a café on the very top floor. Talking is encouraged throughout the building, but those seeking quiet study with a spectacular view must check out the Reading Room across from the café.
- Stake out your own space in either building. Reserve a group study room for you and your friends.
- Want to take home books and DVDs? Check out with your J-Card at the Service Desk on M-level. One great bet for finding popular books and DVDs is on the wooden shelves in the lobby area by the guard’s desk.
Still confused? Librarians are available to assist by phone, email, chat, tweet—or just stop on by the M-level reference office to speak to the librarian on duty. Can’t wait to meet you!
