Library support during exam time

The idea of having to spend the next few weeks shut away in your room revising can become very overwhelming. It can be very easy to get stressed about how much work you have to do, but it’s so important to put your mental health first.

To help support your wellbeing the library offers the following:

Breaks for squash and biscuits

Having regular breaks is important! Join us for free squash, biscuits and fruit every Tuesday and Thursday this term at 3pm, starting on 1st May. We’ll be on the terrace in good weather or just outside the library entrance if it’s raining.

Wellbeing books

The library has a great Welfare collection, with books that offer general advice about maintaining good mental health and dealing with anxiety. You can find them on the lower ground floor and they can be borrowed anonymously for as long as you need them.:animal-3334181_640.jpg

Relaxing films and books

Make some time to relax. Working constantly isn’t productive: when you’re tired and stressed, you can’t take information in. Why not borrow one of our DVDS (2nd floor) or a good book to help you relax?

Study and exam skills

We have lots of books to help you develop your study and exam skills. Find them on the 1st floor (371).

Good luck!

We wish you the best of luck with your exams. If you have any feedback or suggestions on the kind of support you’d like to see around exams in future please get in touch with us.

Desk Clearing in the library- Maximising study space! — 23/04/2018

Desk Clearing in the library- Maximising study space!

pexels-photo-213015.jpegAs it’s exam term we have now re-introduced desk clearing in the library.

This means that from Monday 23 April, desks will be cleared of unattended belongings every two hours (between 9am and 8pm).

Desks will also be fully cleared every weekday morning with all bags, books, papers & laptops left in a specific location on each floor.

The Library is a working space for everyone. Study space is in very high demand, especially coming up to and during exam time.The Jerwood library gets very busy this term and everyone who needs to use a desk should have an equal chance to use them. This means that if you are leaving the library for an extended period (particularly overnight) you should clear the work space, or it may well be cleared for you!

The College is also providing extra quiet study space and you can check which rooms are available here.

Finally, to find additional study space around Cambridge in libraries and cafes, use Spacefinder, which helps you to find the perfect study space for you!
