Life at the NRLF
Everything comes within half an hour or so, often within ten minutes. This is much better than combing the stacks wondering why on earth nothing is on the shelf, although the latter technique does turn up interesting titles I had never heard of.
In recent years, the NRLF has done some remodeling so that there's quite a large reading room with lots of electrical outlets. It's a very agreeable place to work and the books can either be checked out to go home or reserved to use another day, so it has the advantage of a library carrel in that everything found need not be taken home.
