Are you someone who needs quiet to study? Or do you know someone who does? Check out the Cedar Rapids Kirkwood library’s quiet study floor.
Located on the second floor of the library, the entire area is meant for studying by yourself in quiet. We ask that cell phones are put on silent mode and that if you are studying with someone and need to talk, please use the group study rooms or use a table on the first floor where it’s fine to be a little louder.
Especially look for the study carrels around the outer edge behind the book shelves (on the opposite end from the stairs). Carrels are tables with large sides to block out other people and other distractions.
When the group study rooms aren’t in use by groups, individuals may also use them. – BE AWARE that groups still get priority and you may be bumped if any group of two or more people need the space. The further you locate yourself from these rooms the quieter the space will be.
Not everyone’s definition of quiet will be the same and some soft noise like paper shuffling etc. are permitted. If you feel that noise is distractingly loud or goes on for more than a couple of minutes, please notify the reference desk either in person or using the chat on the library homepage. Giving as exact directions as possible helps us try figure out who is causing the problem. If they have quieted down before we get there, we won’t approach them unless we get a second complaint.
Lots of people don’t know about flashdrives and using them on campus.
Students often don’t know the academic words you think they know, check out this study about words you should help define in your assignments.
