For the Daily
It's Fall. And beyond the walls of
academia, leaves are changing colors
and floating blithely through the air.
But within, the air is filled more with
stress - the scent of coffee-filled
cups after coffee cup and various
expletives. Ahh, Fall. Or, rather, as
college students have come to know
it, midterms.
For some students, the serenity of
Fall will be witnessed over the tops of
their books through the windows of the
Shapiro Library, the Graduate Library
and the Law Library. Each library has
its own redeeming qualities, but the
Law Library seems to have won the
hearts of many a serious midterm studi-
er. "It's heavenly," said LSA junior
Amanda Chorba. "It's so quiet"
Indeed, upon entering the Law
Library, oneisnstruck by the intense
silence,and overall air of no-nonsense,
scholarly diligence. Virtually no one
speaks above a whisper, and only echo-
ing footsteps and the soft shuffling of
paper serve as distractions. For some
students, this kind of atmosphere and
the charming decor prove to encourage
seriously focused studying.
"I study at the Law Library probably
90 percent of the time. It has big
tables, and it's very quiet," said Mark
Lutz, a senior in the School of
It is not only the inside of the library
that attracts students. The exterior is
striking with its stained-glass windows
and ivy-covered walls. It conveys a
sense of dignified beauty that entreats
students to study there.
With its large classically decorated
reading room and extra-private, yet tiny,
study rooms, the Graduate Library is
also quite a popular location for
midterm studying. The Graduate
Library is similar to the Law Library in
that the noise level is at a minimum.
Rackham student and Graduate Library
Student Assistant Carrie Bickner, said,
"People study here because it's pretty
much dead quiet."
Another student assistant, who is a
graduate student in the School of
Information, Sheila Cummins, agreed.
"Lots of students study here. It's cozy.
However, many people find the reading
room to be too dark." School of Natural
Resources junior Sarah Wood studies in
the carrels for precisely that reason. "I
don't like the lighting in the reading
room at all."

LSA sophomore Rob Rosenberg diligently studies for his Communications 102 midterm in the Graduate Library readi
Many students who need near silence to concentrate find the reading room to be the best locale to fit their needs.

and the fact that it can seat so many stu-
dents often lead people to seek out the
solitude of the Graduate Library's car-
rels. The carrels can be found in the
library's stacks, and there are about 15
on each floor.
LSA sophomore Marc Aaron
believes that the carrels are a haven for
students who thrive on privacy and min-

imal distractions, but his opinion of the
small study rooms is none too flatter-
ing. "If it's really important, I study in
one of the prison cells in the Grad," he
Kevin Herron, an RC senior and
Graduate Library circulation clerk, has
noticed that "people like the carrels.
They're like isolation booths, and there

are no distractions:"
Library studiers can often
into two opposing groups: t
study at the Graduate Library
who study at the Shapiro Libi
amusing division, and on eith
opinions are quite strong.
