The main floor (M) contains the service desk, study rooms, as well as many large study tables, and is considered a "normal conversation area". The two lower floors, Ground (G), and Lower Ground (LG), contain upwards of one hundred study cubicles for quiet study, and is considered a "silent area". Both G and LG contain Taylor's collection of periodicals. There are also six floors (S1-S6), which are known collectively as "the stacks", and house the majority of the books.
