  • group study areas - schedule a room or have an impromptu meeting in one of the many wired areas

  • Grind cafe (inside the Learning Commons): a great place to meet with peers or for informal meetings
  • free day-use lockers throughout the building
  • Quiet Areas:  If you need to get away from the noise and bustle of the Learning Commons, the library has two designated Quiet Study areas: 2nd floor East Wing (beyond the Music Library) and Lower Level East Wing (follow the signs for Compact Shelving). In addition, the desks near the stacks on the 2d and 3d floors are usually quiet.
  • free digital scanning - scanners located throughout the Golda Meir Library building: turn books, articles or microformat resources into digital PDFs or other formats
  • printers and photocopiers available - B&W and COLOR
