The offices found throughout the Main Stacks are called research carrels. The reason that undergraduate students cannot have research carrels is that there are so few carrels available, in proportion to the demand. Priority is given to faculty members and graduate students actively involved in research that requires extensive use of the research collection in the Main Stacks.

Library Carrels provide quiet, private study space that is near the Main Library research collection. The research carrels in the Main Stacks are available to faculty, graduate students and visiting scholars. At this time, undergraduate students are not eligible for a Main Stacks research carrel. To learn more about how to apply for a Main Stacks research carrel, consult the page Main Stacks Research Carrels.
