NEC's Reading Room and Open Circulating Stacks are located on the upper level of the Library (third floor of the Student Life and Performance Center), along with Special Collections, group study rooms, and staff areas. A fully equiped Seminar Room and Computer Instruction Room will be available to all students and faculty. A dedicated, open stair connects this level to the Library Entry on the floor below.
This sketch shows the Student Life and Performance Center from the standpoint of a person who has just come up the stairs from the lower level of the Library, and is now in the Reading Room, facing the Group Study area. The windows along the righthand wall face south.
The Reading Room measures 73 feet by 35 feet.
