When it comes to final papers, projects and examinations, students can never be too prepared. Here are some tips and tools students might need to know to make it through finals week.
Pollak Library is open 24/7 to give students the computer and study area access they need, although no other services will be offered. The expanded hours run from Monday, December 8, through the end of finals week, Friday, December 19 at 9:00pm.
All quiet study areas are located on the 3rd floor, along with open group study rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors. The group study rooms are available to students on a first-come, first served basis. Each room is equipped with a table, chairs and a white board or chalkboard. The Circulation Desk can supply dry erase markers and chalk.
Need a study room with computers? Look no further than Information and Learning Commons. There are 9 smart group study rooms located on Library North’s 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors. Reservations can be made online up to one week in advance. Here are the guidelines for reserving a room.
It is important to know where the copiers and printers are when printing final papers. There are 4 black and white copiers and 14 printers located throughout the library. One of the printers is able to print color. Here are their locations.
Printing can be a hassle when there are no computers available and time is running out. Students that have mobile devices can now access wireless printing. Using GoPrint Mobile Cloud Print, students can upload documents from their laptops and mobile devices.
If a student does not have a laptop handy, Information and Learning Commons can provide one. For 4 hours at a time, students can check out laptops and iPads to be used within the library. Each laptop is equipped with Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat, while the iPads have multiple apps, including CourseSmart, Google Drive and iFullerton.
