Glass Study Cells

In the biomedical library my students could be found in the main reading room, in the current periodicals corner, in the stacks, and especially in the soundproof study rooms on the second floor. The students sat motionlessly over the stacks of books before them on the tables. The only sound on that floor was the swirl of the pencil sharpener. Inside the glass study cells, the hands moved silently.
