Welcome or welcome back! We hope you had a great summer and if you are new, we look forward to meeting you.
There are lots of study spaces throughout the library for individual and group study and several white boards throughout the building for team work. To make the most of our space, especially on the third and fifth floors, we have orange and purple signs on the group study tables to encourage sharing space whenever possible. You will find full computer and printing facilities on the first and second floors in our Learning Commons and Scholarly Commons. If you need a quiet space to study, please go to our South Reading Room near the Learning Commons on the first floor. If you are looking for a good place for group work, we have several group study rooms that you can reserve through ReservIT. Here is a quick movie to see how to do a reservation. A map of the library is available to see all our spaces and you can even use the Find Me Here tool to send a link of where you are studying in the library to a friend or group to help make meeting easier.
Remember to check the computer classrooms (128, 225, 226) to see if they are open if public computers are full. We also have laptops at the Circulation Desk that may be loaned for the day.
If you are an online student, check our Library Services for Online Learners guide. And look here later for a schedule of library services online orientation sessions that are being planned for you.
For more fun reading, we have a Read and Return section in the Library Living Room that is on the honor system. All of our other collections need to be checked out using your UMass Pass at the Circulation Desk.
