The Library Helps You Manage Finals-Stress

feature-reliefYou already know that the Library can help you get ready for finals with study materials, study spaces (including rooms for group study) and all of the tech you could need (computers, laptops, calculators, audio recorders and more). But did you know that the Library can help your study breaks too?

Take a study break in the Relief Room at the Library – enjoy soothing beach sounds and calming images, aromatherapy, light-hearted activities to give your brain a break, and some sweet snacks for nourishment.

The Library offers another fun study break the next night with the popular Cartoons & Cereal event. As the name implies, you can enjoy all the sweet sugary cereal (or pop tarts!) you remember from childhood while you take a quick cartoon break. All of the essential characters will be there – Spongebob, the Rugrats, Kim Possible, Courage the Cowardly Dog and Ed, Edd, n Eddy!

Update: FIXED! Re: Unexpected Database Outage – GALE

All Gale databases are back to working normally again. Thanks for your patience!

Previous post:

Unexpectedly this morning (11/12/14), Gale databases to which the UTC Library subscribes are unavailable. We have alerted the database team that this is happening, and they are working to fix it as quickly as possible. Please be patient while the work is being completed.

In the meantime, please contact the Library if you need help finding alternate resources.

Please excuse the inconvenience!

Scheduled Maintenance – October 14

On October 14 from 10:00am – 12:00pm noon, an online tool that UTC uses to make accessing full-text articles easier will be temporarily down. You may experience difficulties accessing articles using the “Get It” function through the UTC Library catalog.

Instead of using the “Get It” link, please search for your citation directly using the UTC Library databases. If you would like any assistance, please contact the library in person, online through instant chat, or over the phone.

Thanks for your patience with this temporary maintenance outage.
