Quiet Study Space

Q means Quiet Space

These locations are designated for individual study, where there should be no talking and no audible electronic devices, including cell phones.

  • Dimond Level 3 (Main Level), Addison Reading Room
  • Dimond Level 3 (Main Level), Hubbard Reading Room
  • Dimond Level 5, Courtyard Reading Rooms (silent study)
  • Chemistry Library, Floor 2
  • Engineering, Math, & CS Library study carrels, right side

For space where quiet group work is okay, go to Dimond Level 2.

Library users in quiet study areas whose study is disrupted are asked to first approach those who are noisy and ask them to be quiet. If necessary, please contact library staff for assistance. Library users who do not maintain quiet will be asked to leave the quiet study area.

Cell phones and conversations in Dimond Library can be taken to the Level 3 (Main Level) lobby, the building stairwells, or the areas by the North elevators on each floor. At the branches, please go out into the hall, well away from open doorways.

Undesignated Study Space

Areas not designated as Quiet Study or for group work or study are available for either use.

Areas that tend to be used for quiet study but are not specifically restricted include individual carrels found in balcony areas and along the book stacks on Dimond Levels 1, 4 and 5.

Areas with open tables are often used for group use. Some of these areas include Dimond Levels 1 and 4 by the South Elevator, and the tables in Natural Sciences Resource Center.

In the branch libraries, sound travels easily in smaller spaces, In open spaces, those in groups should keep voices low to accommodate those focusing on individual work.
