As final exams draw near, Silverman Library is busier than ever. With 24/7 access, comfortable surroundings, and plenty of individual and group study spaces, Silverman offers UB students a safe, secure place, both day and night, to study for exams and finish writing research papers.
Public Safety Aides staff Silverman Library’s 3rd floor Silent Study Area from 12 noon-9 pm (Monday-Thursday) and 12-6 pm (Friday) to help resolve questions related to noise levels or other facilities issues.
Naciah Bell, Silverman Library’s Night Operations Supervisor, oversees building security from midnight to 8 a.m. “There’s always someone available at the main desk,” she notes. “Students can check with a library staff member if they have any questions or problems during late-night hours.”
“Exam time is stressful enough without added worry about personal safety and security,” adds Ken Hood, Facilities, Space Planning and Safety Officer for the UB Libraries. “It might be best to have a study “buddy,” not only to accompany you for your mutual safety, but also to watch your belongings when you need a study break.”
He points out that “while Silverman Library will have a night operations supervisor available, students should always feel free to call University Police at 645-2222 in case of emergency.”
And here’s a final tip: Before leaving the library, check the exam week schedule for UB’s Stampede and Shuttle Bus service. End-of-semester transportation schedule changes begin Monday, December 10th.
Good luck on your finals!
