    The Periodical Room is a great place to read and study in quiet. Plus, there is a large amount of natural lighting!

    The tiers are perfect for studying (quiet) in winter (warm). Can't have food there, though; but covered drinks are fine.

    Many Asian kids congregate here. Don't get me wrong.. I am not a nerd but Engineering school forces me to spend a ridiculous amount of hours at Parks.This place is like my second home.

    If you listen to music, please use headphones. It's extremely disrespectful not to.

    Avoid library during dead and finals week. It gets super packed. If you must then stick w/ basement, 1st,2nd floor. 3rd and 4th will be full

    The library should be reserved for people who actually study throughout the semester as opposed to 'finals only' studiers.

    The library is for being quiet to study. If people around you are mostly quiet, you should do the same.
