  5. Find and reserve silent study, group study, and spaces with whiteboards or large monitors at any library or space on campus via the Space Scout app.
  6. Use your Husky card to check out books and movies, and to pay for printing.

  8. Choose from thousands of movies, TV shows and music in English and other languages at the media center at Suzzallo library.
  9. Start your research with online research guides – librarian-recommended resources and research tips tailored to your topics.
  10. Get coffee or food to fuel your studies at By George (open until 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday) below Odegaard, or at Suzzallo Café.
