Exams and Finals and Term Papers, OH MY!

The end of the semester can be a stressful time.  Even finding a quiet place to prepare for exams or write papers can be difficult; especially with the hustle and bustle of the holidays.  Don’t fear, the MEC library is here to help!

Not only is the library a great place to gather information, we are also a fantastic place to put that information in your brain, i.e. STUDY!  If you haven’t visited MEC library yet, consider it your home base for end-of-semester writing, studying, etc.  We have lots of study carrels, comfy chairs, and computers for you to get those final semester projects done.

MEC Library has 2 group study rooms available for groups of 2-6 students.  Each room has a large flat-screen monitor equipped with a computer, DVD/VHS player and laptop inputs.  It’s a great place to practice a group presentation or meet with a study group.

We also have 20 computers in the front of the library (a good place to print that term paper) and a computer classroom in the back of the library.  As long as there is no class being taught, students are welcome to use the computer classroom for individual or group work.

Do you prefer to study in silence?  The library has a quiet study room in the back corner.  If you need quiet (and are willing hush for the sake of those around you), take advantage of this quiet space.  You can even shut the door to avoid sounds from the rest of the library.

Don’t forget, the library is next door to the Testing Center– perfect for a last-minute review of your notes.  We also print test passes – just ask at the Reference Desk.

As always, the library staff is more than happy to help you with any questions or problems that might arise.  If you need research assistance, help with APA citations, or just having printer problems – ask!

All of us at the MEC Library wish you the best of luck in these final weeks of the Fall semester!
