A stress-free collaboration: the University of Lethbridge Students' Union and the University Library partner to deliver a "Stress-free zone" to students during final exams
Many institutions struggle with tight financial resources, and libraries may abandon ideas for student-oriented programs due to budgetary concerns. Student affairs departments typically have funds designated for student-oriented programming and may be able to use those funds to support the work of outside departments. In this article, Eva and Girard describe the creation of a “stress-free zone” to support students during exams and show how libraries and student affairs can pool financial resources in support of innovative programs and services.
