During fourth week, when everyone seems to be cramming for a final, Student Activities passes out snacks to keep spirits up, and the main atrium of the library fills with the hopeful murmurs of students making last-minute block break plans.
Tutt offers more than half a million volumes, the most comprehensive selection of geological survey maps in the region, and an extensive database for newspaper archives and online journals. If you're having trouble writing a paper, you can visit the Writing Center, where tutors will help you edit your work. Although Tutt is a great place to go if you need a quiet, distraction-free study space, it's hard to feel too isolated there. The library was designed to have a large, central atrium, so from most tables you can see, and develop a sense of solidarity with, other students hard at work.
