I know you were wondering how my plan to save trees worked out. Well, it went fine! I went downtown late morning, brought my laptop with me, and read the articles in the library and HGS (Hall of Graduate Studies).
Sterling Reference Room
Hall of Graduate Studies
I used my laptop in class and brought up the articles when I needed them. Carrying the laptop around all day wasn't too strenuous on my shoulder, I saved paper and looked pretty cool while doing it. I rock. I'm definitely going keep it up, since that class has articles nearly every week.
By the way, apparently I go to school with Harry Potter at Hogwarts. Seriously, that's how the rooms look.
