People tend to check in during these times:
Read all 600,000 print books and journals. Then, get started on the 100,000 federal and state government documents, 777,000 microform records, 118 electronic databases and 22,000 online journals.
The study rooms in the basement are by far the most peaceful places in the library...If you can get one.
Be fun and frugal- check out a new release DVD at the Electronic Media Center on the First Floor!
Hide-away in either the upper or lower levels to get work done. The study cubicles are really good if you can't have distractions.
bring a sweater. Its always very chilly here!
The reading room is the best place to study but it is always closed for special events!
Sit out front on the tables for some homework (or a good book.) The trees here are perfect distance to setup a hammock.
You can print black and white from the color printers. No need to wait in line!
Come early during Pharmacy test weeks. The place is BOOKED. Also great coffee and treats in the group study area coffee shop
When no one is in the Reading Room late at night, turn up the classical and do pirouettes in the middle of the floor for a study break.
Visit Cowles Cafe, main level Cowles Library. The handcrafted coffee beverages are great!
Use the study rooms in the basement. You get a lot of stuff done without the distractions!
You can't place books on hold. You have to have a librarian do it for you if you are interested.
Pretty empty this morning. Lots of study space.
If you need help finding quality articles or research, talk to the reference librarian located in the computer lab. They are really helpful!
If you are a regular at the library make sure you mean mug the people that steal your regular spot during finals week
Starbucks lounge or basement is the best place to study!
The renovated group study/24-hour space is awesome for late night studying. Get an access card for after hours @ library.drake.edu/about-us/after-hours-study
The study tables are actually empty and quiet! I love it!!
The study rooms in the basement aren't sound proof. Thus, you might not want to sing in them, especially if you're a bad singer...
These hidden rooms are lovely places to get some high quality studying in.
Definitely study in the quiet room... A little loud because of construction but great spot!
The upstairs is arguably the quietest place on campus...great for focusing without distractions!
Study up stairs and get a good view of campus!
Go see the sand drawing from the monks before its gone
There are so many nooks and crannies to study in! I always love finding someplace new to study.
Definitely go to the tables on the top floor beyond the books if you want peace and quiet. The view is a plus!
Best place to study as a first year: A comfy chair under the main stairs; it's quiet enough you an concentration but there's enough people going through the main lobby you won't fall asleep.
Find a nice hidden corner away from everyone else and it's a lot easier to finish all your homework!
Coffee shop here has delicious cheese danish! Pair it up with a hot coffee and you're good to go!
Don't forget to say Hi! to the friendly staff!! :)
