I start graduate school next week. This week was advisement and registration time (more on this in a later post, perhaps). Today I went exploring around the City College campus. They have some fancy buildings:
In the library, they have the cushiest glass elevators ever:
I took the elevator to the third floor (YU readers might be interested to know that CCNY's library floors do not seem to be accessible by stairs, only elevator...) and discovered this daunting map:
I was clearly entering an uncharted wilderness, filled with wild stacks of books and armored water fountains:
As I traipsed through the stacks I discovered the book's nursery! Undoubtedly to shield them from predatory water fountains, juvenile books are kept safely in a protective cage.
In all seriousnesses, for a moment: For the life of me, I can't figure out why the kids' books are left essentially inaccessible (there's one place in the stacks where you can squeeze in).
