From the reading rooms, you will see two-story study carrels that offer quiet places to study. These carrels are located in all four wings of both the 3rd and 4th floors. The carrels may be used by anyone and require no reservations. The book collection begins on the 3rd floor with call number range A through D. The 3rd floor also houses current, unbound periodicals (north wing) and older bound journals (south, west and north wings), arranged in Library of Congress call number order, and the National Library of Medicine (NLM) Periodicals collection (from 1986 back; current NLM periodicals are housed in the Medical Center Library), the 19th Century Medical Books Collection, and the International Statistics and Social Sciences (ISSS) Collection.
