So exams have started...

...and you have to study for them. Condolences/Good luck/Knock 'em dead, kid.

For students, this is a tough time. Even if you can see the (summer) light at the end of the tunnel, there's still those last papers to finish and finals after that. So there's some pressure, some frayed nerves, some long nights ahead.

Maybe we can't write those papers or exams for you, but the Library can help, in it's own reliable way...

Here's what we can do:
  • stay open until 1:00am every night - we've already started.
  • provide a quiet place to study. Most of the renovations are finished and we've postponed what's left until after exams because of the noise they make.
  • create a comfortable reading area on the main floor, with new, inviting furniture. Done.
  • open up newly renovated group study rooms. Check.
  • maintain the 2nd and 3rd floors as designated "Quiet Zones" where no talking it permitted. Always.
and...

Here's what you can do:
  • be respectful of other students. The first floor is a big, open (and popular) space. In the coming weeks, most of you will be studying, trying to cram as many facts, concepts, ideas and definitions as possible into those brains of yours. The upper floors only seat so many. So, if you're on the main floor, be extra quiet. Notice if the person next to you has their nose buried in their textbook. Keep your conversations down so you don't disturb them. They'll appreciate it.
Just a few more weeks...
