Library Hours for Finals Week

The Library is open extended hours for finals week. Students will find quiet places to study in the library as well as access to computers for writing papers.

Reference librarians are available to help students who may need help finding appropriate sources for research paper and presentation. Librarians can also help when you're trying to get your "Work Cited" pages written. CSM Library subscribes to Noodlebib, a citation generator that can help you organize your sources and craft citations in MLA, APA and Chicago styles. Check out the Citation Resource section of the Library website.
