The Associated Students Leadership Team is the official representative of the University’s undergraduate students, “who promote opportunities for growth and expression, address student issues, and enrich a diverse, inclusive, and engaged community.” Associated Students is also a longtime friend and supporter of Copley Library. As finals are only two weeks away, we thought it the perfect time to highlight three significant ways Associated Students supports its student body through Library events and resources.
Finals Week Refreshments:
Copley Library has a 24 hour, 7 day schedule at the end of every semester to support our students’ study needs leading up to and during finals week. During these extended hours Associated Students supplies a cornucopia of food, fruit, and candy to boost students’ energy and morale.
Look for the snack table just inside the Library’s entrance starting Monday, December 10th.
Have you ever been in the library and forgot your phone or computer charger? Ever left your calculator for an important test at home? Associated Students has you covered! Students can check out these items, and more from our Access Services Desk. Just last week Associated Students purchased numerous new chargers and headphones to meet student demand. See the full list of items and related borrowing policies here.
The newest initiative is the Associated Students Textbook Reserve collection. The collection is comprised of undergraduate textbooks costing $100 or more, for courses with two or more sections. Titles will be added and editions updated on an ongoing basis. To check if your textbook is on reserve, provide the author, title, ISBN, or course name to any Library Assistant at the Access Services Desk. At the time of this writing the collection has over 125 individual titles, and multiple copies of the most used textbooks. During Fall 2018 alone there have been 388 individual students who have checked out textbooks from the collection more than 800 times!
