Finals pressure starting to build?

We here at the library have many ways to relieve stress during finals.  We have tools that will help speed your research,  services to help you relax, and people just waiting to help you when you get stuck.

summon smallWhen you don’t know where to start your research, I highly recommend our new beta search service SummonSummon allows you to search millions of articles (newspaper, journal, or magazine) and CLICnet all at once – over 200,000,000 resources in a single search box.  I dare you not to find something on your topic.  More about Summon.

refworksRefWorks builds bibliographies for you.  So if you were told to create a bibliography for your final paper in the APA format and have no clue what that means, no worries.  Dump the citations into RefWorks, choose APA and dunzo (ok, check it first to make sure the system did what it was supposed to do).  My point is, RefWorks helps build bibliographies with ease.

coffee bene Give yourself a break and relax with some calming tea from Cafe Bene.  Or wire yourself up for a marathon session with espresso.  Either way, Bene’s got you covered.  Hours | Menu

Chair massages – The Wellness Center is sponsoring chair massages on Thursdays for students this spring semester.  On the first Thursday each month, that’s May 6th for those of you playing at home , the masseuse will be on the first floor of O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center – next to  Coffee Bene. On the other Thursdays of the month, the masseuse will be located in Koch Commons. The cost is $6 for 5 minutes or $12 for 10 minutes, and flex dollars can be used.

If you spend more than 5 minutes looking for info on your topic, stop what you’re doing and IM or SMS a librarian – Text send USTLibraries <your message here> to 246246.  We cn save u tym.
