Lied Library is so busy. Isn't there any place where I can find a quiet place to study?

Libraries today are dynamic places. They also serve as places of retreat and reflection. UNLV University Libraries attempt to balance these needs through use of a “zoned” noise model with different noise level expectations - with some areas allowing group/collaborative study and other areas designated for quiet study.


Quiet Study: Extended study (1st), Books stacks (3rd & 4th), Glass enclosed reading rooms above atrium (3rd & 4th)

•Ideal for individual study

•No groups or on-going discussion

•Occasional, quiet conversation only

•Phones must be switched to silent at all times

Open Study:  Media viewing (1st), Computers (1st & 2nd), Charging Counters/Booths (2nd), Leisure Area (2nd), Unenclosed areas (3rd & 4th)
