Finals Week at the Library

How can Murphy Library help you do your absolute best during finals week? Use the resources below to keep your study groove going:

Campus-Wide Finals Scream – the library has partnered with the Wellness Resource Center to sponsor another Finals Scream event. Be at the Clock Tower at 12:00 noon on May 11 to join the scream, which begins at 12:05. If you can’t make it to the Clock Tower, scream wherever you are, film it or photograph it and post it to RAIN LOCATION: Cartwright Center, main dining area.

Free Coffee – Dining Services and Murphy Library are providing free coffee in the library. Times are: 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 12, and 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13. NOTE: These times are pending final confirmation.

Pet a Therapy Dog – Therapy Dogs from the Coulee Region Humane Society will be available for petting on the first floor of the library from 11:30 – 1:00 on Tuesday, May 12. NOTE: These times are pending final confirmation.

Extended Hours – The library stays open later during finals week. Saturday, May 9, the library is open until midnight (instead of 8:00 p.m.). Sunday – Wednesday, the library is open until 2:00 a.m. See all finals week hours here.

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. Room 121 on the first floor will be open as an additional study area.

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.
