Library prepared to help students with research and study

The staff of the Leddy Library encourages students who are finishing projects and studying for finals to come to them for help.

The Library Assistant Access Services offers students guidance with finding online journals, checking out books, writing formal papers, accessing course reserves, and general reference questions.

“We have several quiet areas and comfortable couches where students can sit back and read,” says library assistant Sue Eberlie. “We are always here to help.”

During finals, December 1 to 17, the library will remain open 24 hours Monday to Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Sunday.

“The library is a good place to study because there are quiet floors and I’m removed from distractions,” says fourth-year English student Krista Filipowitz. “I’m going to study for finals in Leddy because I’ll be able to concentrate better than at home.”

Students are allowed to bring covered drinks into the library. Library staff stress that patrons should never leave their valuables unattended.
