Just in time for finals week, we have added new dual headed LED desktop study lamps for the east carrels. These are not attached to the desk, so that you may place them wherever on the desk provides you the most illumination. The necks of the lamps are very adjustable as well, just hold on to the base as you change the position.
Thanks to the house officers and graduate students for suggesting stronger lighting to their representatives on the CVM Library and Education Resources Committee.
Need to add a small amount of printing value to your AllCampus account and can’t get to the Talley Center on main campus?
The convenience fee for making online deposits of $10.00 or less via credit card has been reduced to $0.25. All info on making deposits is at http://onecard.ncsu.edu/allcampus-network/allcampus-account/make-deposit/
When you go online to make a deposit, you now have two choices–the new option for small deposits of $10 or less for a $0.25 fee, as well as the regular option to make any amount of deposit with the $2.00 fee. Deposits made at the AllCampus desk in Talley do not incur a convenience charge, even if you pay with a credit card.
Thank you to the members of the CVM Library and Education Resources Committee for advocating for this change. If you have any questions or comments about printing at NCSU, please visit http://oit.ncsu.edu/wolfprint/wolfprint-welcome.
Dear CVM Colleagues,
As studying for DVM finals is upon us, I am reminded to share the Library room scheduling policy during DVM exam periods. All spaces in the library should be as available as possible to students on a first come, first served basis from November 14 (Wednesday) through Nov. 21 (Wed) at 9 AM.
The only scheduleable activities are 1) testing, and 2) official exam reviews organized by CVM/instructors. Due to the demand, students may not schedule library individual or group spaces for studying during finals periods–all spaces are first come, first served. Individuals occupying group spaces may be asked by a group to relocate. Groups should be cognizant that the walls between rooms are thin and so those studying in groups should try to keep to normal conversational volume.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know (919-513-6218 or email@example.com) and good luck on your exams!
