Study Aids from Academic Success

Study aids from the Academic Success office can also be checked out using the LRC's curbside pickup. Find Academic Success study aids in the LRC's online catalog and place a request as described above.

A list of study aids in Academic Success's collection is available online. Do not use the "reserve book" feature as these books can only be checked out through the LRC's catalog.

Activities for Staying In

Engage with a non-law book or movie

  • The LRC and Copley both have e-books to distract you from the stress of studying. Search our catalog and filter on left by “E-books.”
  • While the popular book/DVD section of the library is unavailable, you can find popular books at the San Diego County Public Library. If you don’t already have a library card from the San Diego County Public Library  - apply for and receive an eCard which lets you check out digital resources.
  • Hogwarts Digital Escape Room  
  • Streaming free movies through Kanopy via Copley, https://sandiego.kanopy.com  

Other Activities (adapted from the UC Berkeley Law Library)

1. Check-in with others! Make sure everyone has the needed support by scheduling consistent time to videochat or phone your friends and loved ones. You can do this while engaging in other activities if you're worried you won't have enough to talk about while chatting daily: e.g., FaceTime while co-exercising, start a small reading group, play chess through a webcast, plan a cook- or bake-along, etc.! 

2. If your individual circumstances allow for it, preschedule 15-30 minutes for daily exercise, whatever level of intensity feels appropriate. Walking, stretching, and yoga are great anxiety mitigators. There are also thousands of equipment-free exercise videos to choose from on Youtube (e.g., PopSugar channel) . 

3. Get creative with the resources you have on-hand. This might mean trying adventurous recipes with seemingly mismatched ingredients, or crafting a hand-made greeting card to check-in with friends from a distance.
