Rutgers University Libraries are pleased to announce that stress busters are back for the spring exam period.

A variety of study break activities will be offered at libraries throughout Rutgers–New Brunswick, including a new “diversion table” located near the Circulation Desk at Alexander Library, where students will be able to borrow coloring supplies, decks of cards, Frisbees, and more.  Other fun methods of stress management will be made available, so stop by a library for more surprises!

Hours of operation will be extended at select libraries during the exam period.  A full listing of building hours is available here.

Need to find a quiet area, group study room, or printer?  Need a subject expert to help you with your research project?  Visit our guide of information for students.

We wish everyone the best of luck on their final exams, papers, projects, and presentations!
