The north wing facing the Quad where the ["24 Hour Reading Room"] and the Main Reading Room are comprise the oldest wing of the library. The main entrance at this time was located on the north side. When the campus was closed during WWII, the Army Signal Corps took over, and training took place in the Main Reading Room. <br> + <br> + During the 1960s, the east and south wings were built, and the library's orientation changed. The main entrance was now on the east end. This is one reason why there is ample bike parking on this side of the building. The entrance was eventually "connected" to Olson by the ["Bike Tunnels" redwood bridge], which was built so that bike traffic and pedestrian traffic wouldn't lead to chaos. For the next 20-odd years, the ["24 Hour Reading Room" Undergraduate Reading Room] (also called the Undergrad) was located in the southeast corner of the library in the basement (the stairs leading there are still present, even though the doors are no longer accessible from outside, and the area has been converted to other uses). The Main Reading Room became the periodicals section, and the microfilm machines were located just outside the east entrance to the room. <br> + <br> + About fifteen or so years ago, construction began on the western addition. Once expansion was complete, the entrance shifted yet again to its present location. The ["24 Hour Reading Room"] was moved to the older north section. These changes coincided with the age of computers. The card catalog area that used to be just inside the main entrance on the east end became obsolete; the computers now continue this function, and require less space. Other changes included the reversion of the Main Reading Room to its original namesake function. </span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Shields Libraryhttp://daviswiki.org/Shields_Library2005-04-19 20:55:52ArlenAbraham+study cages <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Shields Library<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 17: </td> <td> Line 17: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> While Shields is vast, there are some cozy spots to relax and ["Study Spots" study].
