Graduating? The library can help you prepare for life after college

majoring-in-the-rest-of-your-lifeJust because you are leaving UT doesn’t mean our doors are shut to you!  Did you know as Alumni, you not only have access to career services and events, you also have full onsite access to the Macdonald-Kelce Library with check out privileges? Review your benefits and sign up for an Alumni Card online.

During finals, visit us and check out the book display on the first floor that’s all about navigating life after college. We have resources on career goals, resumes, internships, and finding your path. Ask a librarian if you’d like to check out these books, or for any other career or graduate school related questions.

Alumni membership includes access to more than 275,000 books and 1,600 periodicals in-house at the Macdonald-Kelce Library. Alumni may check out 5 books at a time for a two week period. Local alums are able to Interlibrary Loan under the library’s discretion. There is no off campus access to the databases. Bring in your NAA Alumni Card to check out library books.

Good luck on your finals and congratulations to all graduates!


Finals home stretch

We know that you’re studying hard in these last few days of finals (the library has been packed!). Following the end of the semester library tradition, we’ve put out a table filled with puzzles, stress balls, and candy. Stop by if you haven’t yet to study or say hello.

Taking a May term class? If you need the library after Finals Week our hours are always posted online.

We hope you all have a happy summer and special congratulations to the graduating class of Spring 2017!


A Puzzling Development……

Looks like you love puzzles!

Stop by the “Finals Stress Relief Center” on the first floor of the library for some necessary unwinding. We also provide some fun coloring books – no need to color between the lines. One librarian has already stress-broken three crayons and she’s not even studying for finals.


Finish this puzzle UT!


De-stress with a stress ball or two

Our annual finals week stress ball making table is here. Silly? Sort of. Does it work? Absolutely! It’s fun to make a couple, and squeeze the semester away while you’re on the finals homestretch.

Good luck everyone! Study hard, write a brilliant final paper, and finish this seasonal animals of the arctic puzzle…


The Adventures of Naughty Sparty at the Library

Finals can drive anyone a little crazy. Our beloved two dimensional mascot Flat Sparty has gotten into some shenanigans at the Macdonald-Kelce Library this week.

We think Sparty was trying to take a much needed breather from all the stress and had a little too much fun in the Library after hours………


Uh-oh. Flat Sparty messed up the puzzle. Stop by the library and help put it back together!


After getting reports about seeing lights on in the library after closing, we watched the security videos and found Sparty hiding in an old pom-pom in the back room. What is he doing here?


No, Sparty, that’s is not the way to make a stress ball. Stop by the library to make your own.


Flat Sparty wants to watch a movie. You need to stop by the front desk first, Sparty. Come by the library and check out a film to take a break while studying. Sorry, popcorn not provided.
