It may seem that library is the best place to study. However, it is not always as easy as it may seem. Studying in the library is a real art one should master. There are many things that should be taken into consideration both before going to the library and while staying there.
Things You Have to Do before Going to the Library
Prepare Your Laptop
To prepare your laptop means to check if it is charged. Take a charger with you, just in case. Make sure that the cord of your charger is long enough to reach the socket, which may not necessarily be next to you.
Do not forget about the class materials: textbooks, lectures and class notes. Otherwise, what is the point of going anywhere, if you have nothing to learn?
Snacks and Water
You are not you when you are hungry. Do not forget to take something to eat and to drink with you not to get distracted. You do not want to leave your working place every thirty minutes to get a glass of water or a sandwich.
Pen and Pencil
It does not literally mean that you need to have a pen or pencil with you. It means that you need to have something to make notes with, as well as a textbook to write down the information.
In addition to a notebook and a pen, you may also need some additional stationary. Think about it at home and grab your calculator, stapler, sticky notes or whatever else you may need with you.
Headphones are not just for music. They can serve as an indicator that you do not want to be distracted at the moment. Moreover, they help block different sounds and help you concentrate on your main task.
In a Library
Choose an Appropriate Place to Sit
Choosing a right table is an important thing. For example, if you will need to use some books, it is better to sit closer to where they are situated. Moreover, choose a table big enough to place everything you have taken with you (everything necessary for studying! Not your favorite stuffed teddy bear!). In addition, avoid choosing comfortable seats, as they can make you too relaxed, which is not why you are in the library!
Do not Sit Close to Your Friends
It is not because we want you to become a sociopath, but because you need to stay focused. How do you think to reach it if you sit close to your buddy, who attended an awesome party last night and wants to share his experience with you?
Do not Use Your Phone
It does not require any explanation. Just do not use your phone!
