The second floor of Widener Library opened over the first days of May. With the grand architectural features and finishes restored and the space aligned so that busy, noisy, interactive services are separated from the quiet space of the reading room, the second floor is both elegant and functional. Both ends of the Loker Reading Room, which previously housed the reference desk and staff work areas, have been reclaimed for reading room space. All of reference services is housed in adjacent room 230. Research services staff, who provide instruction and research assistance, occupy two rooms, Research Services East, room 240, and Research Services West, room 220.
