We have ‘Summer Reading’ books for your child’s ‘Summer Reading List’!

Standard

Great news for every parent this summer! We are pleased to announce that we have – or can probably have for you in a timely manner – the books on your child’s ‘summer reading list’ which has become mandatory for most schools (Grades 6 – 12). Rather than wait on an endless list for an available copy at your public library, or buy the book out-of-pocket, just order the book here by requesting it from our collection – or ordering it through ILL.  Don’t forget, we have access to titles from libraries around the country – so try us this summer, and pick up all the books your child needs.

Tips for Avoiding Spring Fever

Standard

It’s finally spring! The warm weather may make us want to push aside homework and go hang out outside, but it’s important to finish the semester off strong. Here are some tips for dealing with spring fever:

  • Make a timeline of when your big tests, papers, and projects are due and plan when to start working on or studying for each. This will help you stay focused on the work you have coming up, keep you from getting overwhelmed, and make sure your work is done on time.
  • Talk to a librarian or make an appointment at ACE to get help starting your final projects early.
  • If it’s nice out and you’re craving some sun, bring your work outside!
  • Team up with a friend and keep each other accountable. Work together, or send each other texts to make sure you’re both on task.
  • Schedule time to work when you’re most productive (after a shower, first thing in the morning, or right after class) and where you’re most productive (alone in your room, in the Silent Zone, with your group members in a study room, etc).

As always, feel free to ask the library if you have any questions about resources or research!

Please request your ILL items early over the next few weeks!

Standard

The close of the Spring Semester 2017 is fast upon us, with only a few weeks left before finals. At this time, we ask if you anticipate any need of resources via ILL Requests for final papers, presentations or exams  (books, articles, DVDs, etc),  please submit your requests ASAP. Keep in mind, it’s a busy time at all college libraries for ILL Requests, and some requests may take longer than usual to fill – but we always do our best to get you the items quickly.  Should you have any questions regarding research materials you may need, contact the R & I desk at 232-6299. If you have any questions regarding ILL Requests, contact the ILL desk at 232-6125. We’re here to help!
