Several male students sit in comfortable chairs in the reading lounge on the Main Floor of Nyselius Library. Others students study at the carrels by the window. There is a trash can with an ashtray next to student on the far left (smoking was permitted in the library at this time), and a bin for record albums on the far right of the lounge.
This photo was taken from the brass grate divider on the main floor looking toward the periodical section. The circulation desk is behind the brass grate (behind the camera.) These are architectural photographs that were taken after the library was opened in 1968. Image date is approximate.
Photographic print; black-and-white; 8 x 10 in.
