O'Grady Library floor plan -- upper level

Upper level floor planThe 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.
