Summer studying and reading what you want

As the semester is over and summer is here, I wanted to point out a few new resources that might be of use to you over the summer.  One is for test preparation tools and the other is for recommended leisure reading, as detailed below.

Learning Express*:  A wide variety of web-based test prep tools are available for Graduate School Admissions exams.  This includes the GRE, GMAT, LSAT and MCAT in the College Center of this website.  You can find practice tests available for the Praxis exam for education in the Career Center of this website.  All practice exams will require you to create your own personal login in order to save your progress.

NoveList*:  On the light side of resources, this one allows you to browse genres, find read-alikes, see award lists, or create your own combination of searches to find a work of fiction that will hit the right mood for a summer break.  If Lane Library does not have the fiction book you are seeking, there is a good chance your local public library will.

These two resources can be found in our list of databases on the Lane Library website and can be easily accessed off-campus from wherever life may find you this summer.  If you have any questions on any library resource or how to gain access off-campus, please look over the basic information available and contact the librarians with any specific questions you may have.

Enjoy your summer!

*These resources are provided freely to residents of the state of Wisconsin through Badgerlink (Wisconsin's Online Library).  These resources are set up to recognize your IP address and allow Wisconsin residents access to these resources.  If you are outside of Wisconsin, you will need to access them through Lane Library's website and enter your network ID when prompted for off-campus access.
