Winter months are a great time to focus on your studies. With February and more cold, snowy days upon us, it is a great time to grab a cup of warm tea or coffee and chip away at that degree. This month we will focus on study tips and resources to help you make the most of these cold study days.

Read on for a few helpful hints and resources from your JIU Librarians:
