Countdown to Finals

Now here are seven glorious words we've all been waiting to hear: it's (almost) the end of the semester! Classes end Monday, December 12, and finals week goes from Tuesday, December 13 through Monday, December 19. We know you're gearing up for exams (we see you, lurking in the back of the library past 9:30pm) and would like to offer a few reminders:
  • The library is a popular place this time of year. Please keep in mind that your fellow students are as gut-churningly stressed out as you are, so please remember not to talk in the quiet areas, to keep your voice lowered in the group study rooms, and to take your in-person conversations up front.
     
  • Need some help with research? Fretting about those in-text citations? We can help! Our reference librarians are ready to help you with any research or citation questions you may have.
     
  • Need a laptop for next semester? Our G.O.A.L. program, in which eligible students can borrow a laptop for the entire spring 2017 semester, is still accepting applications until December 19. Check out the G.O.A.L. Program page for more information.
     
  • We know you love the library, and before closing, the library loves you! But trapdoors in the ceiling release buckets of black widow spiders at 9:30 p.m. sharp, so please be respectful of closing hours and your own bodily safety and leave on time!
Good luck in this last week. You've made it this far, and you're so close to finishing. You. Can. Do it!
