I worked in the Reserve Reading Room all four years starting in 1970. The co-workers were the greatest crew ever, and you could get the book or article your professors had put on the weekly reading list without fail. Econ students would always ask for “Branson’s Notes,” which were cardboard-bound volumes for Professor William Branson. Sometimes there were requests for an article by some theologian or philosopher, and you had to learn the title from a worker from the last shift.
Now I guess it’s all online or PDFs. My last walk around in Firestone showed no trace of this place on the ground floor.
