Getting Ready for the Final Push 

As the end of the semester approaches and exams loom in the not-too-distant future, library staff want to remind you that we are here to get you through that final push. 

Library Services 

Reference Librarians are available to meet with you for help with your research and compiling your citations. You can book an appointment online at a time that is convenient for you. If you don’t see a time that works with your schedule, email and we’ll do our best to arrange a meeting time that works. 

Tutoring and Writing Support 

Visit Tutoring Services on the Navigation Center’s MyHill page for information on their end-of-semester and exam period hours. There you will also find a link to book an appointment. Tutoring Services offers tutoring in 35 different subject areas and writing. They are on the third floor of the library (MacPhaidin, 314). All individual appointments take place either in 314 or on Zoom. Tutoring Services' last day of regular tutoring is Wednesday, May 3. They are open Friday May 5 and Monday through Wednesday May 8-10 for finals tutoring. 

Library Spaces 

If you need a quiet place to work, feel free to book a study room. If you need a space to relax, check out the sensory room, located at the end of the hallway to the left of the digital lab. That space was created through the efforts of Assistant Professor of Healthcare Administration, Danielle Waldron, and several students and financed with Stonehill’s Wellness Initiative Fund. It offers dimmed lighting, flexible seating options, and sensory items such as fidget toys, a weighted blanket and coloring supplies. 

Library Resources for Work 

The library has many things you might need, such as laptop chargers, phone chargers, graphic calculators, dry-erase markers, headphones, display ports, cable connectors and more. Stop by The Desk and see if we have what you are looking for. 

Library Resources for Relaxation 

Visit our Library of Things to borrow games, baking equipment, noise cancelling headphones, happy lights, de-stressing foam rollers, musical instruments, and more. The library of things is located on the first floor of the library, across from The Desk. If you want to chill with a good book, browse our Leisure Reading collection, which is adjacent to the library of things. 

Library Finals Prep Day – It’s Almost Summer! 

Join us on Thursday, May 4 (Reading Day) as the library gears up to help you get through finals week. Our day-long event will feature Pet Therapy as well as activities from the college’s Wellness Office and Counseling Services. Pay a visit and you can also join us for art projects, board games, lawn games (weather permitting). 

Throughout the event there will be plenty of snacks (including an ice-cream stand), summer-themed giveaways, and a raffle for a Stonehill-themed beach bag packed with all the essentials for a day by the shore. Watch our social media streams for a full schedule of events.
