It’s That Time Again

It’s That Time Again

The start of a semester is a great time to brush up on study strategies and other academic skills. Save yourself from stress and so-so grades by checking out one of the ACU Library’s books on display this month or an online resource in our Pathfinders.

The ACU Library: Developing Christian Minds since 1960

The ACU Library: Developing Christian Minds since 1960

The ACU Library is committed to developing Christian minds. That’s why librarians Sean McNulty and Rob Oliverio strive to provide resources and research help to support the studies of ACU students, faculty, staff, and administrators — but also alumni, pastors, missionaries, and other community members.

Check These Out! Books on Missions

Check These Out! Books on Missions

On the heels of Global Opportunities Week, the ACU Library has a display of books on missions and missionaries. These inspiring books remind you to pray for and be involved in the spread of the kingdom of God across the world through the preaching of the Gospel. As the Lord Jesus said in the Great Commission, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:18b-20 ESV). Check out these books and see how Christians like you have obeyed this command. We have more! Perhaps you may feel that missions aren’t for you. But did you know that you can fulfill the Great Commission even in your own backyard? Explore international student ministries. Students from all over the world come to universities in the United States, and many of them want friendship as well as an education. You can show them the love of Christ. Pursue true friendship with them. They may want to practice English; and reading the Bible with them is one great way to help them do that. Realize that the focus of the Great Commission is actually on making disciples, not on going somewhere away from home. As you go about your life, make...
Start the Semester with Better Study Strategies

Start the Semester with Better Study Strategies

Now that summer is over, you find yourself staring at a full-time load of classes. The pressure’s on. Don’t worry! The ACU Library has put together a Pathfinder on effective study strategies to connect you with resources that can save you time and stress. This Pathfinder features books, eBooks, websites, and handouts on time management, textbook reading, test preparation, test anxiety, and more. Learn how to learn with the “Improve Your Memory” handout. Get more out of your study time with the “Time Management Tips for Study” handout. With better study strategies, you can succeed in college and stay sane. Keep reading for a taste of what I’m talking about. If you haven’t already, you’ll soon discover that college reading is tough stuff. Textbooks may be a cure for insomnia, but they can facilitate learning, too, if you use them properly. One common strategy for textbook reading is SQ4R, shorthand for Survey, Question, Read, Write, Recite, Review. Follow these steps to get more from reading textbooks (and other things): 1. Survey: Take about ten minutes to glance through the chapter. Start at the beginning and read the introduction and learning objectives. Then go through the chapter and look at headings, subheadings, pictures and captions, special boxes, and end-of-chapter summaries. Read the first sentence of most paragraphs as you do this. After this survey, your brain will be more ready to learn, since you’ll know where the chapter is going. Survey reading is like looking at a map before going on a road trip. 2. Question: Write down some questions based on what you saw during the survey reading. Turn...
