    1st floor is best for study groups because they have the dry erase walls. 3rd floor is procrastination station. 4th and 5th guarantee you'll forget what time or day it is.

    After receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, Martin Luther King, Jr. presented his manuscripts, records, and personal papers to the Mugar Memorial Library. Be sure to stop by and have a look.

    If you want high-speed WiFi internet, don't be in area with many people since you will all be connected to the same "Access Point". The more isolated, the better!

    Snag a seat on the second floor by the balcony and maybe you'll even get a private concert--the practice rooms on this floor are not very well soundproofed.

    Talk-friendly and comfy study lounge on the 3rd floor with GREAT view over the Charles. Nice place to hang or do group work.

    Sigma Kappas love to get their study on--especially on the 3rd floor by the PAL lounge. Get there early for a good seat!

    Free high speed scanners on the first floor in the copy room. Enter through the staircase on the right as you come into Mugar or walk by circulation and down the hall. Closes at 23:45.

    During finals: keep eyes peeled for people with suitcases and pillows under the tables. Also: crying people

    although we don't always love to study, Mugar Library gives us a great space to get some work done.

    On November 22, 1983, a student found a unique place to catch some shut-eye in Mugar Library.

    not that this is a secret, but just avoid the third floor- you won't get any work done. try the second floor or fifth floor cubicles.

    You have to find a nice spot to study and go in at odd hours to get some peace and quiet.

    Don't ask us cage dwellers where to find or why you can't find the book you're looking for. We're writing our dissertations ...or checking our Facebook.

    Check out the Music Library on the 2nd floor! You can listen to music and find scores there.

    If you hear people singing when you're trying to study, it's probably an a cappella group rehearsing. We're sorry!!

    If you want to get some serious studying done, go to the basement or the fourth floor.

    3rd floor near the PAL Study Lounge is always the loudest area of the library. Avoid if you're serious about studying

    Printing center can be slow and the printers break often. Use printers in residence mail rooms if you can.

    Never try to pick up printing here on your way to class while running late. Unless you love living dangerously.

    DO NOT study here during finals. People apparently believe that they will study, but Mugar ends up becoming a social hangout, in which the noise can drive anyone to insanity.

    Beware the fake security guy in the AM screening people to let in only workers. Unnecessarily rude and disrespectful. We pay how much to go here and be treated poorly by this guy?
