From UC Berkeley Library:

The reimagined floors four and five are expected to become a top study destination, with technology services, a wide variety of flexible study and discovery spaces, and student-friendly policies. Studios equipped for Web conferencing and presentation practice are available, as well as an expanded tech help desk, a tech lending service, meeting rooms for group learning, and writeable glass walls to aid in collaboration and brainstorming. A wellness room and living room-like spaces round out the offerings, while expansive windows allow for abundant natural light and sweeping views of Memorial Glade.
