It’s Crunch Time! The Libraries can help!

Swamped with papers?  Need help finding sources for those last projects?

Just as students face the final crunch of deadlines for assignments, research papers and presentations, Reference and Information Services (RIS) in Perry-Castañeda Library, the McKinney Engineering Library, the Fine Arts Library and the Kuehne Physics Mathematics Astronomy Library (PMA) will promote the availability of in-person, drop-by assistance, subject librarian consultations and the UT Libraries Ask a Librarian IM and email services.

Crunch Time takes place November 9-11, and features giveaways, timesaving handouts and the ready availability of staff at service points.

A brief survey to ascertain awareness of service options will remain a part of this year’s activities and will be available from any EID workstation across the UT Libraries.  Students who participate will be entered in a prize drawing.

“Crunch Time” focuses raising awareness of relevant services at a time in the semester when students are likely to benefit from them most.  Staff are prepared to help students tackle research dilemmas and expedite the process of finding illusive bits of data and authoritative resources to support their semester-end work.
