Library offers group, independent study spots

Student can prepare for finals in a building that was designed to help them study.

Sara Bushong, dean of libraries, said Jerome’s environment is conducive to studying because “we designed it with students’ input and with what worked in other libraries.”

“The eighth floor is quiet study, and the furniture is set up for one person to study at a time,” she said. “But the seventh floor is better for group study or meeting for a group project.”

Jerome offers students a variety of services through a helpful staff, Bushong said.

Students can go to the Learning Commons for tutors, ask a librarian for help with research or go to the student technology assistance center, whose staff can aid in finishing that final project Prezi.

For finals week Jerome has extended its hours; it is open 24 hours a day this week from Sunday to Thursday.
