O'Grady Library floor plan -- upper level
The upper level of the
library has the circulating stacks--books available for check-out.
These are organized by Library of Congress call numbers, and the
LC Classification Schedule
gives a general indication of what subjects are shelved where. Also
found on this floor are study tables, carrels, and the beautiful Benedictine
Reading Room. As is true on the other floors, both network jacks and
wireless are available throughout.
- Benedictine reading room: Take a break
from studying and catch up on current events. This room has
the most recent issues of selected magazines and newspapers.
There is also a display of newly added book titles and a
sampling of academic journals. The room features large
windows, comfortable furniture designed by the library's
architect, Michael Graves, and Simon Kogan's "Light," a
sculpture commissioned by the monks of Saint Martin's Abbey
for this room.
