"Good luck with exams" display at Robeson Library
To wish students success with finals, and to point out the many ways they can help with end-of-
semester assignments, the Paul Robeson Library put together a light-hearted 'Good luck with exams'
Located near the entrance of the library, the display features symbols of late night studying and
paper writing such as a lamp, a jar of coffee grounds, a Starbucks coffee cup, a CD, and a batch of
loose-leaf folders. The display also includes brief notices on helpful library services and resources
such as Ask A Librarian, group study rooms, reference assistance, a plagiarism tutorial web site,
books on coping with stress, and library hours during exam week
In conjunction with the display the library conducted a raffle, with a first prize of a RU book bag
filled with school supplies such as notepads, pens & pencils, white-out, a flash drive and blank CDs
and a second prize of a 2 GB flash drive. Any student entering the library could enter the drawing,
simply by filling out a raffle ticket at the circulation or reference desks. The raffle drawing was
held in the evening on December 11th.
The display and raffle were organized by Jean Madden, Library Associate for Outreach and Reference at
the Robeson Library.
