The University of Southern Mississippi's Cook Library has many tools and advantages for students to use in there everyday academic life and one of the tools is a research carrel. The research gives students and faculty members the opprtunity to have a privite space in the library to study and do school work. The resaerch carrel has plenty of shelve space to hold books as well as a filling cabniet to hold papers. It is a great tool to have as a student when those big papers come where you just need to be alone. To rent a resecrh carrel for the semseter go to the USM Cook Library website http://www.lib.usm.edu/.
