The upstairs library floor is the quiet study area. Your talking will disturb others who are studying. Others should not be able to hear your conversations.

  • You may talk quietly on the library's upper floor near the reference desk, but do not disturb others. Conversations should not be overheard. 
  • Gentle whispers only are acceptable for most of the upper floor, and whisper only if absolutely necessary. 
  • Please ask the librarian at the reference desk to shush anyone who is not quiet. You can text us at (518) 203-1073 or email us at
  • Use a group study room upstairs for group discussions, and close the door. You may book a room at the circulation desk. 
  • If you really need to talk loudly (or eat), go to the student lounge across from the Einsytein's cafe in the hall outside the library.
