Messinger Graduate Study Rooms

Short Description

Located off either end of the Messinger Periodical Reading Room, these beautiful rooms have been designed to meet the specific needs of our graduate students.

The studies provide a quiet retreat where grad students may study and relax. The centerpiece of the North Study is a stained glass window donated by the Friends of the University of Rochester Libraries.  The window features the phrase Bibliotheca Docet or “The Library Teaches.”  These beautiful spaces previously housed newspapers, microfilm readers and government documents.

The Messinger Graduate Studies and Periodical Reading Room were named in recognition of the generosity and continued commitment of Martin E. Messinger, Class of 1949 and were dedicated May 12, 2010.
