seven floors of stacks

To get a book, you fill in a retrieval slip and take a number. It makes up to 20 main for the request to zip down a pipe, and for a pager to pull your item and put on a conveyor belt to be delivered up to the reading room. But first must have a readers' ticket.

Reading Room

If you have a publisher's contract or you are doing graduate studies, you can leave your books at your special spot in one of the smaller reading rooms and come back day after day.
