    Looking for a quiet place to study? Travel up to the 6th floor to find the Safire Room, nicknamed “the Gryffindor Room,” and the Plastics Pioneers Room - both have great views of campus!

    If you're in a hurry, don't even consider using the computers here.

    During finals week, be prepared to see why this place has garnered the nickname "Club Bird." The ground and first floors can get a bit distracting, so head upstairs for some peace and quiet!

    Good environment to work on your assignments and projects. Ask for Tarida, SU's librarian. She will help you in books you want . she's a Wizard :)

    When exiting the building, look for these stickers. They'll keep you from opening the door from the wrong side (like it hasn't happened to anyone before).

    Bathroom in the basement is still the move even after 7 years.

    The library closes at 10pm every Friday and Saturday! Coolest library ever... encourages u to stop studying party hard on the weekend's.. no studying after 10pm.

    Be sure to get a table near an outlet (if you can find one).

    Don’t waste your time walking around in circles here on the 3rd- 5th floors during midterms/finals/Sundays. Check out Panasci lounge in Schine instead.

    Don't ask the UTS desk for office supplies. They're there for IT support not to be your personal Office Depot.

    Go to the first floor technology desk to schedule a tech team room for use on floor 3 & 4. Computer, TVs and room for teams of 8!

    Second floor one person couches are the best to take a quick nap when pulling an all nighter in the library

    Since you're at Club Bird, you're right by Alpha Tau Omega; good times on the reg, ladies on the reg, yachts on the reg.

    Annual event at the library, sign up through ORL's website (if you're a current SU student). It's a lot of fun and one of the few times you're encouraged to be noisy in the library!

    Gabrielle G · October 27, 2011
  • Sarah F.

    pages has the best breakfast sandwiches on campus, served all day

    Check out the Map Room on the 3rd Floor! One of the best collections in the country!

    Be polite to the tech desk consultants! They're happy to help if you if you don't act entitled, they're your fellow students too!

    Looking for some peace and quiet? Check out the Silent Reading Room on the lower level or the Quiet Computer Cluster on the 2nd floor of Bird Library.

    If you're in a quiet area that's being noisy, you can call 315.416.7047 between 8 am and midnight to have someone take care of it. After hours, talk to one of the security guards on the first floor.

    Penelope Singer · May 6, 2011
  • Gabrielle G.

    First floor too noisy? There is a new quiet computer cluster on the 2nd floor by the current periodicals collection!

    Treat your laptop like a baby... Don't leave it alone or it could wander off.

    The printers have all sorts of problems since they upgraded to Windows 7. Don't count on them if you're printing last minute before class, and be nice to the tech desk!

    Ryan Balton · February 22, 2011

    Worst cafe, run the other way.

  • Joe G.

    Lots of quiet study space here, especially on upper floors. Some people don't use them quietly though. Also lots of books!

    Joe Genco · February 10, 2011

    Definitely one of the better, more quieter places to study inside Bird.

    The new scanners put in this semester on the first floor are amazing!

    The comfy chairs on the second floor are the best. If you need to pull an all nighter, they are perfect for power naps.

    Sabra roasted red pepper

    This place sucks. Get out while you still can.

    Dave M · November 10, 2010

    Does anyone take the responsibility of cleaning tables on the 2nd floor? Never see anyone

    WENJING WANG · October 21, 2010
  • Brendan B.

    No tables no outlets. Get ready to walk around for a while
