You are also welcome to use the space to study. In the library you will find areas for quiet study, considerate study, and conversational study, in one of our four study rooms.

If you have a question about research or library resources, email Ms. Kristi at kbell@kas.tw, or come see her on one of your breaks. If you need help finding a book, help finding something new to read, or help checking out because you forgot your ID, please ask at the circulation desk!
