Have Your Test Proctored At The Library

   Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

exam signIf you're taking a distance or online course this summer - or any time of the year - you can have your tests proctored at the library!

Exams are proctored by the Reference staff, free of charge (other than what you may be charged by your school, or for postage). Usually, the process is for you to submit the Chelmsford Library as a proctor site to your school, and they will contact us to confirm we are a valid location. In general, the information they will need is the following contact information:

Chelmsford Public Library
25 Boston Road
Chelmsford, MA 01824

Brian Herzog
Head of Reference
978-267-5521 x211
bherzog@mvlc.org

We can accommodate either online or paper-based tests, and students will take their tests in one of our study rooms. The study rooms have large windows and are situated right next to the Reference Desk, so students can be observed at all times during their test.

For more information, or to schedule a proctor session for one of your exams, contact the Reference Desk at the information above.

Education Resources at the Library

   Thursday, May 28th, 2009 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

New EDU book shelvesWe've made some changed to the education-related resources at the library:

  • New Section for EDU Books
    To make college directories and test study guides easier to find, we pulled them out of the normal non-fiction shelves and places them in a special section. These new shelves are located by the Teen Services Desk on the lower level, and are marked in the catalog by the call numbers EDU.

    Also on these shelves you will find financial aid information, FAFSA forms and worksheets, and college catalogs.

  • New database: Testing & Education Reference Center
    This database replaces the Learning Express Library, and offers high school, college information, tools, practice tests and study guides, as well as application builders, and profiles of colleges.

    This database is also create for career and employment research. It has many practice test for career and proficiency exams, an online resume builder, a career research library, self-assessment test, and much more.

    The Testing & Education Reference Center, can be used from home or in the library - to get started, visit http://www.chelmsfordlibrary.org/reference/databases_alpha.html#TERC

For help with these education resources, please contact the Reference Desk at askus@mvlc.org or 978-256-5521 x211.
