"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' exhibit.

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.
