Hello, I am having trouble managing all of my responsibilities for college. What do you suggest I do?
Hello, thanks for reaching out, and I'm sorry to hear about your struggles, but it sounds like you're very passionate and want to succeed! Let's first start with assessing how you manage your time. It's important to prioritize the tasks you have to do throughout a day and week, so that you are able to keep track of everything with the time that you do have. Organizing tasks by category, due date, and necessary steps toward completion will help to keep things very orderly, and will also help you to keep track of your own progress. Can you send me a list of everything that you have to do? Let's work on organizing together.

I am an undergraduate student learning Korean at the school of Arts and Sciences. I am looking for beginner/intermediate fiction books in Korean so I can practice my language skills. Do we have anything like that?
Dear Student, Thanks for your inquiry, I’m glad that you’re enjoying learning Korean! I checked in our collections and unfortunately we do not have current holdings in this area. However, the University of Pennsylvania has a dedicated Korean Contemporary Fiction collection which might be a great help to you. Similarly, you can find such collections at the University of Ohio. Our college is part of a consortium in Philadelphia, so you may be able to go to their library with your student idea without an issue. But if you would prefer to pick up the books at Swarthmore, then I would suggest using our Inter Library Loan. Hope this helps! Best, Karen Adjei, MLIS
Hello, hope you're doing well! How do I find out different community groups in the database?
Hello, thank you for your answer! Unfortunately there isn't a function that allows you to retrieve a full list of community groups in our database. However, you can begin to type based on location, and it will formulate a drop-down menu of all community groups in a particular location you are looking for. Here is a screenshot: Hope this helps!
