We’re reaching the end of the semester, and all the work is coming to an end, too — final exams, research papers, big projects. And we know you’re working hard to get all of those papers and projects finished, and to study for your exams. To make it a little easier for you, Crumb Library’s Extended Study Hours are about to begin. Starting on Sunday, December 4 (that’s this weekend) through Thursday, December 15, we’ll be open until 1 am, Sunday through Thursday nights.

You heard it — 1 am. We’ll only be closed for six hours a day during the next few weeks (from 1 to 7:45 am, when you should be sleeping!) Study until you can’t see straight, if you need to — we’ll be open.

Be sure to buy your coffee early, though, because Minerva’s is closed after 9 pm. And, don’t forget, our reference librarians are at the desk on the first floor to help you out with your research until 10 pm (through December 8, when we go back to our normal hours).

For help with how to cite various types of sources – printed and online – we have compiled a page with links to a number of web pages that give guidance, and lots of examples. Whether you’re using APA, MLA, Chicago, or whatever style, you should find some helpful advice. This link is on our Research Assistance page under “How to Cite Sources.”

And for additional help – ask at the Reference Desks in Crumb or Crane Libraries.
