April showers, and a year’s worth of academic work, bring May flowers!

As our semester winds down (how is it almost the end of the semseter?!), the library has provided a space for you to reflect on and share your successes from this year, as well as the challenges you have faced.

Visit the bulletin board just outside the library to post a flower with your success, a raindrop with your struggles, and read what other students have experienced this year.

Our research paper workshop was scheduled for Wednesday, April 23rd. It will be rescheduled for sometime the following week – so look out for updates!

This workshop is good for those who have never written a college research paper before, or for those that need to improve their skills. This session is different from typical library sessions you have with a class – this session will focus on the major hurdles in the research process (stress, time-management, picking a good topic, etc.) and how to overcome them, rather than covering how to use library resources.

There will be free food and drink for participants.

Any questions? Email  or call 413-775-1831 for details.

There will be a poetry event in the library solarium this evening at 6 pm, until 8 pm. The solarium will be noisier than usual as a result. If you need a quiet space, the south wing of the library will be unaffected. Thanks!
