1. Places to study that are quiet and where nobody can find you.
2. Magazines you've never heard of before.
3. Academic journals to review for possible use in a research paper or project.
4. On-line computer databases where you can do even more in-depth research and locate articles which exist about any subject of interest.
5. Audio and video tapes, CD's, and other multimedia learning materials.
6. Computer based instruction tutorials on a variety of subjects.
7. Reference books like "Joe Know-It-All's Absolutely Essential Guide to Graduate Schools."
8. Where the comfortable couches are for those important moments of philosophical reflection and artistic inspiration.
9. Which librarian(s) enjoy their work the most and smile at you when you ask even the most ignorant questions.
10. Where the Internet accessible computers are located.
