When it comes to their studying, it appears UC Davis students are enduring traditionalists.

Shields Library was again voted the top study spot for Aggies to hit the books.

With over 3.1 million volumes, Shields Library is the largest library in Yolo County and the third largest in the UC system. It first opened in 1940 and was renovated several times over the past 50 years, with the newest additions to the building introduced in 1992.

Students cite the quiet atmosphere and convenient location as the library’s most attractive features.

“I feel like it has a more scholarly environment so it gets me in study mode,said Jenny Broker, a senior biological sciences major who says she visits the library at least once a day.There are too many distractions in other places … the library is quiet.

First-year biological sciences major Angela Miraeles said she prefers the library for working on group projects.

“There are lots of big tables here and it is in the middle of campus,she said.There is no confusion with directions and getting lost.

The UC Davis Arboretum came in second place while Mishka’s Café, located on Second Street in downtown, rounded out the top three.
