Introduction to Library Study Spaces for Engineering Students

The ASU Library has 8 buildings spread across the campuses in the Phoenix metropolitan area:

Engineering students are welcome to study in any of the above libraries on the different ASU campuses, however, the libraries described below (Noble and Polytech) also have print materials and library staff familiar with sci/tech resources in addition to study spaces. 

*The Downtown campus also a Law Library for students of the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law.

Science & Technology Libraries

Noble Science and Engineering Library

  

 

Entrance to Noble Science and Engineering Library on Tyler Mall

 

For students in the Fulton Schools of Engineering programs on the Tempe campus, the majority of your printed material will be located in the Noble Science and Egineering Library.   The library is located on the northeast side of the Tempe campus at 601 E. Tyler Mall. 

In addition to books and journals in print, the library also provides over 60 PC workstations (asurite required) from which you can reach not only library material but also "My Apps" provided by the University Technology Office.   Or use your laptop or tablet -- ASU wifi is available throughout the building and immediately outside; electrical outlets are available on all floors but a large concentration is on the first floor "community center."  The library also provides headphones, power strips, usb drives and scientific calculators that you can check out at the information desk.

The library provides a variety of study spaces including comfy chairs, sofas, booths, tables for four or more, and individuals desks.  The library uses "traffic signal" signs to differentiate the spaces:  

  • Green light - group study
    The first floor, aka the "community center," is where groups are encouraged to meet. Tables can be arranged into different configurations so that both large and small groups can meet. Whiteboards on wheels can be moved to where needed and a packet of multi-colored dry erase markers and erasers can be checked out at the Information Desk for use with the whiteboards. Because this is a group study area, talking and cell phone conversations are permitted.

    Groups are also permitted in the enclosed study rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floor; five of these rooms are reservable while the remaining 18 are "first come, first served".   For more information see Study Rooms - Noble Library on our website.

  • Yellow light - quiet study 
    The open areas of the 2nd and 3rd floor are for quiet study; please do not meet in groups or use cell phones in these areas. If talking is needed, be brief and keep voices low.
     
  • Red light - silent study
    The enclosed silent study room on the 2nd floor and the small individual study rooms (called "carrels") located on the perimeter of the 3rd foor are for silent study. No talking or cell phone use is permitted in these rooms. The 2nd floor silent study area is "first come, first served" however the small private rooms require that you check out a key (6 hours maximum) at the Information Desk.  For more information about the study carrels, see Study Rooms - Noble Library on our website.

Polytechnic campus Library

  

 

For students in the Fulton Schools of Engineering programs on the Polytechnic campus, much of your printed material will be located in the Polytechnic campus Library located on the bottom level of the Academic Center Building.   Some of your material will be located in the Noble Sciene and Engineering Library on the Tempe campus; you may request that material in Noble be delivered to Polytechnic for your use via the our Document Delivery service.   

In addition to books and journals in print, the library also provides over 25 PC workstations (asurite required) from which you can reach not only library material but also nine frequently used software programs (such as SolidWorks) as well as "My Apps" provided by the University Technology Office (via your "My ASU" account).   Or use your laptop or tablet -- ASU wifi is available throughout the building and immediately outside.   The library also provides headphones, power strips, usb drives and scientific calculators that you can check out at the information desk.

The library provides a variety of study spaces including comfy chairs, sofas, booths, tables for four or more, and individuals desks.
