I worked here for a couple years in college. It's a great library, and I was proud to be a part of it. But I know all the dirty little secrets of it, too. Let's just say if you don't need any of the books there, avoid deck 8. Just don't go there. Also, be careful on 2a. But do go. It's a great library, an old and worn but majestic building with a huge collection including some special holdings.
