Lower Level Bookstacks

The Lower Level contains all of Crerar Library's dissertations, Library of Congress Call Numbers TN-Z, non-Library of Congress Ms and Ts, Harvard Yenching, and books with Dewey Call Numbers.  It also has Crerar's microfiche and microfilm.  Any items located on the Lower Level will have this location noted in the online catalog.  If you need help finding material or operating the Compact Shelving, please ask Circulation Staff for assistance.  You can reach the lower level bookstacks by taking the stairs or elevator down one floor once you've entered the library.

Lower Level Canteen

You can reach the Canteen area of Crerar by taking the stairwell from the library's entryway.  This is the only part of the library where eating is allowed.  There are a number of ITServices computers in the Canteen, as well as tables, restrooms, and access to the Hospital/Gordon Center tunnel.  The PSD Graphic Arts department is also located off of this area.  Please note there is no Canteen access from the lower level bookstacks.
