You'll be assigned a specific seat in the Reading Room, for a 4-hour period. You'll also receive a confirmation email indicating the assigned seat.
Remember that before leaving the Library you'll need to return your study place, using one of the Self Check stations.
|Important: After the return of a study place, the system will prevent you from borrowing a new study place for the following 15 minutes.|
