Geisel Library is Basically a UFO

One of the famous landmarks of UCSD is the very own Geisel Library. A week before finals or midterms, this place gets packed and it can be pretty hard to find a good seat, but you do have 8 floors to choose from.
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Right behind me is a guy's a library, and it's known for its really unique architecture. People say from far away, it looks like it's a spaceship. Yeah, because like buildings don't normally look like that. Um, the whole thing is covered in a window and windows and concrete, but there's no third floor. One, two, four, five, six, seven, eight and, you know, just other things about the library is that you could read out your textbooks there, and you could also rent out like iPhone, chargers, calculators and even Dslr cameras. By the end of the day, the library, you could see that there is a noise level sign. So for each of the eight floors, there are different noise levels that you could make. Of course, the first and second floor called active studies, so you could actually talking or normal voice, and you could play some of your video. As you go up, it gets quieter and quieter until the eighth floor, which is complete fine. There is no noise at all and there are no distractions if you really need to study. Over on the left side, there's something called reserves. Look, so you just look at the text book you need for your class on the computer. See if I could give you an example So the teacher will let you rent out a book from the library. Then you could rent out this book for three hours. Find a three hour due date and you could also library, of course, is named after Dr Seuss, whose last name was So there are a lot of our in a glass case is that you are by Dr Seuss some of the famous ones that he has. If we go down there is like a whole wall dedicated to his wife. If you want to do something called, you have to go to another party with the library and you could also make copies of your textbook. Downstairs first for Geisel West is a Teal C, also known as the Teaching and Learning Commons. So this is where you could get extra help in your class is also know as supplemental instruction, which is like extra tutoring. A cafe indoors, the library and it's on Geisel East. So this is a section where most students they want to get up. I'm taking the elevator up to the eighth floor so I could show you what the newly renovated floor looks like. You know, checking out that book that I had on reserve that I just showed you all how to, like, check out a book. That's like the normal amount that I stay in the library. I know that during finals week, the second floor is open twenty four seven, and people like sleep there overnight because, you know, they're just on that study grind, always studying. Um, so the second floor during finals week is open twenty four seven, but the other floors will be like, Shut down! So everyone congregates on the second floor.
