‘Twas the Week Before Finals: When it comes to finals, a sense of humor helps!

With finals rapidly approaching, now is a good time to learn about the library’s hidden gems. The Library offers so much more than books and study spaces (though those things are still pretty cool). Here are the top 10 things you may not have known you could do at the Library:

10. Access current magazines and newspapers

So much information is out there, and we want to help you access anything you need. Stop by Falvey to access current magazines and newspapers that will give any assignment extra flair. We want you to feel happy about your work.


9. Check out an E-Reader

Tired of carrying heavy books around all day for every class? Check out an E-Reader and save yourself the hassle and stress!



8. Chat with a librarian

We’re here to help you through those times when you feel like this:



7. Griffin Room Access

Tired of waiting for a computer on the first floor? Does it make you feel like a lion scouting out prey? Try the Griffin Room in the back of the first floor, an instructional space that doubles as a computer lab.



6.Text a call number from the catalog to your phone



5. Scan and Send a Document to print/email/Google Docs

We know finals are stressful, so we try to make it as easy as possible for you to get everything done. Falvey’s services allow you to scan and send documents to print, to your email or even to Google Docs! It’s like getting one of these …

4. Print From Your Laptop

There’s no need to stress out about finding an available computer to print. You can print right from your own laptop!




3. Borrow A DVD

Everything from award winning documentaries to the ever funny Bridesmaids … This could make you feel better than Gale.





2. Attend Scholarly Talks

Need inspiration? Take a break from your work and attend one of this week’s scholarly talks. This walrus certainly agrees:

1. And the number one thing you may not know you can do in the Library … 24-Hour Study Space

Yeah, you knew about the library’s 24-hour lounge (aka “Club 24”), but did you know the Library also has 24-hour study spaces in the Reading Room and lobby of Falvey Hall? And being surrounded by fellow night owls is encouraging: You’re not the only one cramming for a test or finishing that paper.



So even though you may feel like this:



We know you’ll do great!


Good luck on finals!
