This brief tour will guide you through Fenwick Library, showing you some of the key locations and services of the library. Directional signs throughout the library also acquaint you with the facility.
Before you begin, it helps to understand Fenwick Library’s layout. Fenwick is 5 stories high. Think of Fenwick’s new addition as a U which wraps the two older “towers” on the north (faces Mix@Fenwick), west (faces Robinson Hall) and south (faces woods/Johnson Center), and attaches on each of the five floors. Look for the doorways marked Connect & Learn – you move back and forth into the towers through those passages. As you tour the building, you will also notice signs - yellow (QUIET), green (ACTIVE) and red (SILENT) designating the type of study spaces available on each floor.
Most of the library’s services are located on the first and second floors. First Floor includes Information, Circulation, Interlibrary Loan, and more. Two large instruction rooms are also located on First Floor. Second Floor is home of the Research Commons with a variety of study spaces, public computers, Scholarly Productions at the Research Commons (SP@RC), Subject Librarian offices, Special Collections Research Center, the Music Library and the Digital Scholarship Center. The majority of Fenwick book collections are located on Floors 3, 4 and 5.
As you tour the library, you will discover how these services and collections can be of value to you. Let’s start in the lobby, which is located right outside the main entrance to the library.
