Studying in a library can help many students do better, especially if their only other option is to study at home or in a noisy dormitory. Studying in the library is also convenient for groups of students who want to study together. The methods used when doing group research at the library are slightly different from those used to do research alone.

Steps

Method 1 of 2: Study research alone

Bring any materials you need. Decide on the topics that you plan to study while in the library and pack the textbooks you need for that class. Also, bring the class homework or content notebook with you. Besides, bring a pencil and a color marker. That way, you will be able to take more notes and highlight with crayon the content you have recorded.

    Bring your computer with you if it is absolutely necessary. Some students like to take notes on their computers, or some students may use the electronic version of the textbook, so a calculator or e-reader will become essential. If the tools are not needed leave them at home. If not, they will only distract you.

Please go to the “quiet floor” of the library. Libraries with only 1 floor do not have regulations on quiet floors, but libraries with multiple floors usually do. That floor is usually either on the top floor or on the ground floor, rather than the main floor, as the main floor has a lot of people passing by and is probably the noisiest. Going into a quiet room to do your research will ensure that you have the least amount of distractions in the library.

Please reserve your personal research study room in advance. More modern libraries are often built with research labs, especially if the library has a connection to a certain college or university. In large libraries serving many customers, you may need to reserve a study room for your use. Explore the library policy about study classrooms. You may have to book between 24 hours and 1 week in advance to reserve your seats, and the amount of time students are allowed to use the room may also be limited.

    If your library contains only large meeting rooms, you will not be able to reserve them for personal research purposes.

Note that many libraries will loan classrooms on a first-come, first-served basis. Basically, if you go to the library and the room has available you can use it. There may or may not be a time limit in such cases, but librarians may ask you to leave if you appear out of work and there are others waiting to use the room.

Method 2 of 2: Study group research

Bring only materials that are relevant to you for the teamwork. Even if you regularly carry your computer or MP3 player to study by yourself, leave those items at home when you are in group study. If you have those devices in your bag, use them only when the group has a break or has time to study by yourself during group study. Don’t bring them out in the middle of group work, and leave them at home if you are easily tempted by them.

    As with individual research, bring your textbooks, notebooks, and classroom assignments, or other topics related to the topic you plan to study with the group. Also, bring notebooks, paper, pens, and highlighters.

Please choose regular floor. If the library is large enough to accommodate a quiet floor, stay away from it. The quiet floors are usually reserved for personal research study. During the study group study session, you will need to talk with other team members. As such, you should choose floors that are not regulated.

Look for a large table. Make sure everyone is comfortable. If you have a small group with about 2-3 people then a small round table is probably still good enough. If you have a larger group then you will need a bigger rectangular table.

Pre-book a study room or larger conference room. Some libraries have small research study rooms for individuals and slightly larger study rooms for groups. Find out the library policy regarding the use of such rooms. Usually, you will need to make a reservation, but not always. Some libraries will allow you to use any study room you like, as long as it is empty when you enter.

    For large groups, consider using the large conference room in the library. These rooms often have more stringent usage conditions.

Use the open meeting room if the library allows it. If a conference room has not been reserved by a group yet, some libraries may still allow you and your team to use the conference room, especially when study rooms and other areas are full.

How to study at the library

The library is a very good place to study. I go to the library once in a while if I want to change my study environment, or if my house is too noisy, or if I have to wait for an hour or more at school until the next lecture starts. There are a ton of other reasons to grab your books and study an afternoon/morning at the library.
What I like most about studying at the library is the fact that the library is usually very quiet and there is an atmosphere there that makes you concentrate on your work easily. There are usually more students working there which is very motivating for me.
I usually go to two different libraries: the university library is the place I go to if I have school, and want to study a little bit more. The library in my hometown is the library I go to if I don’t have any lectures (I refuse to travel 2 hours to go to the university library if I can study at the library in my hometown as well).

I noticed that I took either way too much stuff with me to a study session at the library or not enough. Here is a list with things you can/should take with you to a study session without packing too much or too little.

  1. First of all, a big bottle of water. Especially when you are going to study at the library for multiple hours, it is so important to stay hydrated. It makes you feel more fresh and awake during your study session & it’s good for your health.
  2. The second thing you should take with you is a plan. Notice how I say plan and not planner or planning. Make sure you have made a plan before you go to the library. I mean, you probably don’t want to spend your precious time there on making a good planning. If you know what you need to do there you can start working and focusing immediately.
  3. Pack all the books and syllabuses you are planning to use during the library session. Pack the notebooks that you need too. (And for all my law students reading this: bring your law books with you)
  4. Grab a pencil case and fill it with all the pens you think you are going to use. For example, pens, pencils, erasers, highlighters, correction fluid and a calculator. Of course you don’t have to bring all your pens and highlighters, just the things you need. It’s okay to bring an extra pen with you in case one pen runs out of ink ;).
  5. Food: I never know how much food I should bring with me to the library. I usually pack as much food as I would normally eat at home (sandwiches and fruits) and something for a little bit of extra energy (a candy bar or cookies). Especially if you are going to study for a lot of hours, it’s nice to treat yourself a little bit. Also, bring some money with you in case you still feel hungry after eating your food. My libraries are close to places you can eat food so I sometimes eat something there during a long break. Little reminder that in most of the libraries you are not allowed to eat so make sure to eat outside the building.
  6. Bring some extra paper or a notebook with you. This will always come in handy because you can always jot down some notes or thoughts or things you need to remember later.
  7. The library can be really cold sometimes. That is why I like to bring an extra sweater with me, in case I get cold.
  8. Only bring your laptop with you if you need it for studying. It’s a good idea to bring your phone with you in case something happens, but if you don’t want to be distracted by your phone, my tip is to leave your phone charger at home so you are forced to save your phone batteries as much as you can.

So this is a complete list go the things you should bring with you to a study session at the library. I hope you enjoyed this article & I hope you’ll have a productive study session when you are going to study at the library!

Extra tip: leave distractions at home as much as you can. If you don’t need your laptop for studying, leave it at home and you probably don’t need a whole set of washi tapes for studying either. This way, you are creating a study environment without any distractions so you can focus a lot better on your work.

How to study at the library

It’s getting to that point of the year where I’m finding myself in the library almost every single day. It was like all my professors decided “hey, let’s schedule everyone’s tests all on the same day.” You could say that my brain is almost fried to a crisp. I’ve found that I personally get a lot my work done late at night in the library since that’s when I’m the most awake. I can stay there for hours at a time and just knock out a bunch of work. If you’re getting ready for library binge study sessions, here is some useful information for you!

Things To Do Before The Library Binge

Print Off Everything You Need

If you haven’t already done so, print off all the study guides, notes, and PowerPoint slides you need so you don’t have to keep getting up every time you need something. Make a list of everything you need to print and do it all at once just to save some time. I have an hour block between my classes most days so I use that time to hit the computer lab and print off everything I need for the day.

Make A To-Do List

Start thinking about what all you’re wanting to get accomplished that day whether it be studying on all your material or knocking out a good chunk of homework. Just because it’s easiest, I just make notes on my phone of what all I’m hoping to get done that way. If you’re more of a paper list person, by all means, go for it! I just usually end up losing my lists after I make them. Since my phone never leaves my side, I always have my lists!

Plan Out Your Study Time

How much time are you planning on studying, and dedicating to certain subjects? I usually don’t plan out times or set alarms for when to move onto a different subject. I do prioritize my studying though by numbering my tasks in numerical order. A task with a 1 next to it means that that assignment is TOP PRIORITY. The higher numbered tasks are usually tasks that aren’t too important but if I have time I’ll get them done.

Reserve A Study Room

If you know you’re going to be at the library for quite a while, you might want to reserve a study room. You can sign up for these rooms either online through your school’s library website. Just pick a time limit, a room, and you’re all set! Study rooms are great because you know you’re going to be away from all the distractions. You don’t have to worry about losing concentration or loud noises because you’re in a private room!

Turn Off All Distractions

I’m a sucker for checking my phone and surfing the web in the middle of my study time. Although I get some fun out of it, I don’t exactly get much studying done. Turn off your phone, and block all social media or websites you frequent so you can stay on task!

Turn On Pocket Points

I just found out my college supports this iPhone app called Pocket Points! You turn the app on while you’re in class or on your college campus, and the longer you don’t use your phone, the more points you receive. You can redeem these points for exclusive coupon offers for your favorite clothing, food, or merchandise stores. In less than a week I already have 300 points and I can’t even decide on what I want to spend it on! There are stores like Starbucks, Subway, Hy-Vee, Levi’s, Tilly’s, Papa Johns, and so much more!

This app isn’t supported by all schools, but visit this website to check if your school is accepted!

Use My Promo Code 4D3E5 and when you sign up, you can get 10 free points towards your first reward!

Supplies

School Supplies: Don’t forget to bring the essentials like pens, pencils, folders, the homework you’re supposed to be working on. It’s not a study binge if you didn’t bring your work!

Study Guides: Have all your study guides printed out so you don’t have to make a trip to the printer later. Whether you’re just studying the information or filling it out, having a physical copy is great because you can take it everywhere!

Textbooks: Although you may not be working out of the textbook, bring the textbook for your classes. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been studying and realized I needed my book for the homework or to find an answer. No matter what, always bring it just in case!

Charging Cords: Your technology is useless if they aren’t charged!

Headphones: Headphones are always handy because you can listen to music, or put them on as a “don’t talk to me I’m busy” sign. It works almost every time.

Blanket/Sweatshirt: I know you aren’t supposed to get too comfy when you study, but the library is cold sometimes! Usually, I’ll wear a big sweatshirt and drape a blanket over my legs so I stay warm and I’m comfortable enough to focus.

Comfortable Outfit: I love my big sweatshirts and leggings. I’m studying so I don’t need to focus too much on my outfit. Just wear something comfortable that you can stay in for a long amount of time.

Fuzzy Socks: Again, ya girl gets cold in the library. I love fuzzy socks because they keep your feet so warm. They’re also socially acceptable to wear around the library without shoes as well, and they’re just fun!

Snacks: You’re going to get hungry at some point through your binge. Instead of having to walk all the way back to your dorm for some snacks, bring them with you!

Drink Of Choice: I also get very thirsty while studying and water from the water fountain doesn’t always taste the greatest. Bring a water bottle from home or grab your favorite soda or energy drink to get you through the night!

Anybody over the age of 15 with a valid library card, or a one-day admission ticket is allowed to study in the National Library of the CR (NL). The range of provided services is different (for more see How to become a user). In the NL, it is allowed to study documents from the NL collections as well as one´s own materials.

Only a small part of the NL collections that is held on open-access in the reading rooms, is available for immediate study in the Klementinum.

Most of the documentsmust be delivered from closed stores after placing a request, delivery times are different depending on the location of a document (around 2 hours for documents stored in the Klementinum building, or until the next working day afternoon, if it is stored in the Hostivař Central Depository).

Printed documents (including the bound periodicals) may be requested particularly to the General Reading Room. The Social and Natural Sciences Reading Room is equipped with devices for making electronic documents (e.g. CD-ROM, DVD, CD-A, audio cassettes) or microfilms and microfiches accessible. The latter can also be requested to the Periodicals Reading Room. The Scholars Reading Room is primarily intended for users engaged in scientific and research, or pedagogical activities.

Documents to the reading rooms of the specialized departments are delivered from the particular reference stores. These requests are mostly dealt in shorter time, often while you wait. Delivery time is ruled by the specific regulations of these reding rooms (Periodicals Reading Room, Music Department Reading Room, Manuscripts and Early Printed Books Reading Room, Library and Information Science Library).

In the reading rooms, it is also allowed to study materials in electronic form. Such materials are mainly provided on licensed databases (see How to use licensed databases) or the Digital Library (see How to use the Digital Library).

How to Study at the Park Library While Physically Distancing

Have you attended a HyFlex classroom this semester? Have you visited a campus building to get a meal, pay a bill, or pick up your textbooks? If so, you’ve probably seen the signs posted around campus about wearing a face covering and physical distancing. After a while, those signs might as well be wallpaper! We stop reading them and assume we know what they say. Ya-da, ya-da, ya-da, blah, blah, blah.

CMU’s Fired Up for Fall website reminds us that on campus we must:

  • Stay at least 6 feet away from other people
  • Not gather in groups

Can you visualize 6 feet? CNN provided some great examples of what 6 feet looks like. Are you a dog person? Visualize two average Golden Retrievers standing head to toe. Do you have a three-person sofa? It’s probably 6 feet from end to end. Most mattresses are about 6 feet from head to foot, and most doors on campus are more than 6 feet tall.

It’s gratifying to see so many of you wearing masks. Keep up the good work! If you find wearing a mask uncomfortable for long periods, you may need to shorten the time you spend here.

When I talk to students about physical distancing in the Park Library, your reactions often include:

  • Sorry! We didn’t know!
  • But we live together!
  • We’re siblings.
  • We can’t move the chairs?

We get it. It’s weird for us too. After two decades of providing group study rooms and recently opening the Copeland Suite and 3 East, it’s odd for us to tell you not to sit together. Learning is social! And yet, we’re expected to physically distance inside all CMU buildings.

In most of the Park Library, plan to study alone. If you want to sit near a friend for mutual support, sit at separate tables that are side-by-side. Things to know when you sit at our standard tables and carrels:

  • Our standard library tables, the ones with the lamps, measure about 6 feet wide by 4 feet deep. Only one chair is available at each of these tables and only one person can safely sit at each table and remain at least 6 feet from the next person. Most tables are bolted to the floor because of the power running to lamps and outlets on the tabletops. But for obvious reasons, we cannot bolt the chairs to the floor and ask that you not move the chairs.

How to study at the library

  • Library carrels vary in width and in the number of connected units. The personal work surface in the carrel pictured below is 33 inches wide, and the two units together are about 6 feet wide. Despite the walls between the four study surfaces, only one person can safely sit at these carrels and remain at least 6 feet from the next person. Again, we ask that you not move the chairs.

How to study at the library

You can study in a group in selected areas of the Park Library as long as you are at least 6 feet apart.

In the Copeland Suite, there are several options for creating physically distanced group space for two to four people.

  • At the tall tables, two students could study together if one student sits by the pillar and the other sits at the end of the perpendicular table.

How to study at the library

  • In the pod on the far south end, four students could study together if one student sits alone per each of the three counters behind the couch and a fourth student sits at the table by the wall.

How to study at the library

  • In the five study pods along the east windows, the square tables are 3 feet wide. Two students could study together if you push together two of these tables and sit on the far ends.

How to study at the library

In 3 East, there are eight pods that each have 4-foot square tables. If you pull two tables together edge to edge, two people could sit at the far ends and be 8 feet apart.

How to study at the library

We hope to see you this fall (no closer than 6 feet!) and wish you a successful semester!

How to study at the library

How to study at the library

  • B.A., English, University of Michigan

When looking for good places to study, we can all rule out a movie theater, a death metal concert, and a conga line. So where does that leave us? To find the best places to study for a test, you just have to look for three things: comfort, appropriate noise levels, and information access. The key to good concentration is to avoid distractions, both visual and auditory.

A Library

For those who are intimidated by the library, consider these key factors: It’s quiet—librarians accept nothing less. It’s comfortable—you can find any number of cozy chairs, table arrangements, and nooks to set up shop. It has great information access: books, the internet, and people who specialize in answering your tough questions. What’s not to love? The library definitely ranks at the top of the list of best places to study.

Your Room

Studying in your room passes most of the qualifications of a good study place unless you happen to have roommates or noisy neighbors, in which case, you may need to vacate. Otherwise, your room can be an ideal place to study. It’s quiet if it’s just you, you can be as comfortable as you like (studying in jammies has its upside), and if you’re plugged into the net, then your info access is top notch. (Log out of social media accounts to minimize distractions.)

A Coffee Shop

Java while studying? How many ways can you spell bliss? A coffee shop is perfect for studying unless ambient noise is a distraction for you, like it can be for auditory learners. Most coffee shops have Wi-Fi, so you can access info on your laptop. Bonus? The baristas’ music choices are almost always perfect for early-morning or late-night cramming sessions.

A Bookstore

Information access is at its best at a bookstore. Thousands of perfectly organized books and magazines are available to you if you’re looking for a quick answer. Many large bookstores also offer a café, so you can fill yourself with caffeine or a panini for some brain food while studying. Plus, in general, bookstores aren’t large crowd gatherers, so you should have some relative peace and quiet when you pull out the textbooks.

The Park

If you’ve been cooped up in a classroom and you need to see some green, consider taking yourself to the park for a study session. Get some vitamin D while you look over your perfectly organized notes from class. You can probably find an available signal for your laptop, and nothing says ambiance like chirping birds, wind rustling through leaves, and sun on your shoulders. Bring water and sunscreen. If you’re going all Thoreau, tote bug spray as well.

An Empty Classroom

If you’re worried about distractions from friends in the library, then consider taking yourself into an empty classroom to study. Sure, it’s not as comfortable as some other places, but information access is prime, especially if you find a teacher popping in and out. Plus, if you need 100% quiet during your study time, then this is a good option.

A Study Partner’s House

Don’t overlook your study partner’s house. First, you’re getting the benefit of working with someone else who shares your same goals. Second, you have the benefit of information access without having to look anything up online—you can ask someone who’s in the same class. Third, your study partner may be able to concoct a great milkshake. You never know.

A Community Center

If the library is too far away from your house, but a community center (like the YMCA, for instance) is pretty close, then head down there for a quick study session. Most community centers have rooms you can use for studying, and because exercising is a great way to relieve test-day stress, you can just hop on the treadmill afterward for a quick run and call it a day.

A Tutoring Center

Finding good places to study is the easy part; maintaining your focus while studying is often the toughest. If you’re one of those people who find it difficult to study, then heading to a tutoring center could be right for you. Sure, it’ll cost you a little bit of cash, but when you’re bringing home the GPA you really want, it will be worth it.

There’s nothing like looking like you’ve been studying —a lunchbox would prove it too. Visit the study store for your study buddy, lunch pail, and more cool stuff.

Testimonial

I have really enjoyed this site. It contained a lot of good information. I’m currently in biology and a history class. This site has given me new ways to study that make sense.

I wish I would have gone to this site a lot sooner. I will tell other people about this site.
