“Crunch Time” Returns for End-of-Semester Relief
As the final push of the semester once again approaches, and anxiety levels are on the rise, the University of Texas Libraries are trying to help ease the tension.
The Libraries will kick off their annual "Crunch Time" resources clearing house from November 4-15 at various branches around campus to raise awareness of beneficial resources and services which are available at the point of need during the pressure-filled final weeks of the semester, as well as the rest of the year.
“Crunch Time” is organized to make students aware of relevant, useful library services at a point in the semester when they are likely to need them most. Staff is prepared to help students tackle research dilemmas and expedite the process of finding authoritative resources to support their end-of-semester work.
“Crunch Time” promotional events will feature giveaways, time-saving handouts and one-on-one staff assistance, as well as a fun, web-based informational quiz hosted on all UT Libraries EID workstations which allows participants to enter a prize drawing.
Students are encouraged to stop by any of these six Libraries locations for assistance: the Benson Latin American Collection, the Fine Arts Library, the Walter Geology Library, the Life Science Library, the Perry-Castañeda Library, and the Kuehne Physics-Mathematics-Astronomy Library.
Also, for the first time, the Libraries will partner with University Health Services during Crunch Time to add a health-maintenance dimension to the research assistance and support provided.
