Moffitt Library is UC Berkeley's undergraduate library. It was named after James K. Moffitt.
Moffitt Library used to have a two-week check out period for patrons regardless of status. Due to a new catalogue system and restructuring, however, many books can now be checked out under the same guidelines as Main Library books (one month for undergraduate students). The main access floor (the third floor) houses the reference materials, the reference desk and computers. Course reserves are found behind the circulation desk on the third floor. There is also a very convenient tunnel to the main stacks under Gardner library, which provides access to those study areas even when the main library is closed. Most of the library's books are located on the fourth and fifth floor. A computer lab and study tables are located downstairs on the first floor. The second floor is for staff use only.
Free Speech Movement Cafe
To commemorate the protests surrounding the Free Speech Movement, the university established the Free Speech Movement Cafe in the lower level of the library. A reproduction of what may be considered the most recognizable and iconic photograph that captured the movement, a shot of the key demonstration march where suit-clad students carry the Free Speech banner through the university's Sather Gate in fall 1962, stands now at the entrance to the cafe.
