Getting started on your master's project or thesis? Here at the Journalism Library, we have lots of resources to help you get started! If you'd like to look at master's projects/theses from past students, you can access the 2010-2013 ones in Journalism. The 2009 and earlier projects/theses are located on the second floor of Lehman Library. Use our Master's Projects and Theses Index to find specific titles or authors.
Congratulations on your upcoming graduation! Wondering what Columbia library privileges you'll have after graduation? Here's the scoop:
Your Columbia UNI and password will continue to give you electronic access to library resources for a grace period of about 6 months after graduation (assuming you were registered during the spring semester). The Library Information Office (LIO) encourages you to continue to use your UNI during the grace period for all eresource access (electronic databases, ebooks, ejournals), and after this time, you may obtain an alumni ID card through LIO. The cost is $5 payable with Visa, MasterCard or personal check (cash is not accepted). Borrowing privileges may be purchased for $30 per month.
Need some research assistance with your project or thesis second draft? We can help! Come to the Journalism Library, meet with Cristina Ergunay (who is back from leave and available on Wednesdays and Thursdays) or one of her colleagues. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a research consultation.

We’ve all been there. You’ve got a huge exam in the morning, but you can’t tear yourself away from all those DVRed episodes of "The Bachelor," right? You need to find a place to study, free of all the distractions of home, but you’d also like it to stay open late, and be in close proximity to food?
The Study Spaces page of the Columbia University Libraries website breaks down all the library study spaces on campus by the features they offer, including which libraries offer quiet spaces, rooms for group work, and spaces providing close proximity to food. Find the right space for you and hit the books! (Red Bull not included)
