Finals week is here and we know you might need every bit of help the ASU Library can offer, which is why we want to remind you of some of the extraordinary resources you have access to through the ASU Library:
Library Locations For Studying and Exam Taking
All library locations are open throughout finals week, and Hayden Library has extended hours during this time period as well. There are lots of quiet places to study in each library, as well as spaces that are perfect for working with groups.
It's important to note that students will need to wear a face covering in the library even while taking an online exam. Students will be allowed to remove their face covering during the Respondus Monitor facial recognition and authentication process prior to the beginning of the exam/test/quiz, but then they will need to replace the mask and keep it on during the duration of their stay in the library.
A Google-like search engine in which you can readily limit your search to online-only resources provided by ASU and one of many advanced tools the library offers, including over 650 research databases and a custom link to Google Scholar connecting you with full-text sources that are available at the library.
Wherever your curiosity leads you, the library has a guide – 487 of them, to be exact. When writing a paper or beginning your research, these guides can point you to the best databases to use on any topic and show you exactly how to cite your sources.
