How can Murphy Library help you do your absolute best during finals week? Use the resources below to keep your study groove going:
Free Coffee – Dining Services and Murphy Library are providing free coffee in the library after Murphy’s Mug cafe closes at 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 13, and Wednesday, May 14. Enough coffee will be on hand to serve 100 people, first come, first served.
Pet a Therapy Dog – Therapy Dogs will be available for petting on Tuesday through Thursday, May 13 – 15, from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. on the first floor of the library.
Silent Study Room – that’s right, this room is 100% silent. It’s Room 12, along the west wall of the library basement. The room seats 8 people, and everyone in the room takes a vow of silence, including no talking, whispering, cell phones, etc.!
Quiet Study and Group Study Areas – Use the library floorplans to identify officially-designated quite areas and group study rooms.
Individual Study Rooms – These small rooms are along the walls on the east side of the basement. While some of these are reserved, others are open and available on a walk-up basis.
Extra Computers – During finals week, the library will open the instruction classroom, which is Room 30 in the basement. It’s like another computer lab.
Extended Hours – The library stays open later during finals week, starting on Saturday, May 10, when it is open until midnight. Sunday – Thursday, the library is open until 2:00 a.m. See all finals week hours here.
Check this page over the next few days – we hope to offer additional finals-week goodies soon.
