Make the Most of Your Library

The Library’s Website can be very helpful too; it shows you how to cite sources, gives you research guides by subject or course, and allows you to search for articles and books before you even get to the library!

And if the library doesn’t have it they can get it for you through interlibrary loan system! You can access them by clicking here.

If you’ve never gone, try it! The library is a great place to study with fewer distractions than your dorm room or apartment! The fewer the distractions, the more likely you are to get work done, and the less stressed you’ll be about your school work!
