Are you looking for a quiet place to study on the north side of campus? The Sciences Library is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 5 PM, and we have study booths, study carrels, and large tables that you can use for group or individual study. We have Legos, K’NEX, and coloring on hand for you in case you find that you need a study break. We have streaming music and feature films if you would like a different kind of escape. You can also check out our Finals Week Stress Relief Guide to find web comics, animal live cams, virtual nature tours, online puzzles, and more!
When you take a break from your studying, rest and recharge with online puzzles, science coloring sheets, wildlife live cams, and museum and nature virtual tours with the Sciences Library’s Finals Week Stress Relief Guide. You can put together a puzzle of the Andromeda galaxy, The Blue Marble view of Earth, a porcupine having a snack, or a peacock displaying its feathers. The science coloring sheets include Coloring Molecular Machinery: A Tour of the Protein Data Bank, Discovering Biology Through Crystallography, and images from the Biodiversity Library. Animal live cams from Explore.org, zoos, and aquariums can transport you to the sights and sounds of an African safari, a colorful, bustling coral reef, or a soothing waterfall. Immerse yourself virtually in the Badlands, the Grand Canyon, and other National Parks, or attend an online tour of the Field Museum, the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, and the British Museum. If you need a laugh, you can find Bird and Moon, xkcd, and other science comics on the Stress Relief Guide!
